## 1. Introduction

## 2. Methods

#### 2.1. Method # 1—Sliding-Window (SW) Technique

#### 2.2. Method # 2—Dynamic Conditional Correlation

- 1st step:
- Estimate ${\sigma}_{i,t}^{2}$ using GARCH(1,1) ${\sigma}_{i,t}^{2}={\omega}_{i}+{\alpha}_{i}{y}_{i,t}^{2}+{\beta}_{i}{\sigma}_{i,t-1}^{2}$
- DE-GARCH data: ${\mathbf{r}}_{t}={\mathbf{D}}_{t}^{-1}{\mathbf{y}}_{t},\phantom{\rule{0.277778em}{0ex}}\mathrm{where}\phantom{\rule{0.277778em}{0ex}}{\mathbf{D}}_{t}=\mathrm{diag}\{{\sigma}_{1,t},{\sigma}_{2,t}\}.$

- 2nd step:
- Estimate quasi-correlation matrix ${\mathbf{Q}}_{t}=(1-a-b)\widehat{\mathbf{S}}+a{\mathbf{r}}_{t-1}{\mathbf{r}}_{t-1}^{\prime}+b{\mathbf{Q}}_{t-1}$, where $\widehat{\mathbf{S}}=\frac{1}{T}{\sum}_{i=1}^{T}{\mathbf{r}}_{t-1}{\mathbf{r}}_{t-1}^{\prime}$

- 3rd step:
- Rescale to get a proper correlation matrix: ${\mathbf{R}}_{t}=\mathrm{diag}{\left\{{\mathbf{Q}}_{t}\right\}}^{-1/2}{\mathbf{Q}}_{t}\phantom{\rule{0.166667em}{0ex}}\mathrm{diag}{\left\{{\mathbf{Q}}_{t}\right\}}^{-1/2}.$

#### 2.3. Method # 3—Weighted Graph Algorithm (WGA)

#### 2.4. Simulation Design

#### 2.5. Real Data Analysis

#### 3.2. Stroop Task Data Results

^{th}time point, the values were mostly above 0.5. These results again confirmed our visual observation of the original time series. Finally, as expected, the WGA estimates of dynamic correlations between hippocampal and striatal LFPs were near zero for most of the time points. Thus, the WGA method led to meaningful results.

## 4. Quantifying Uncertainty and Testing Hypothesis

^{th}and 97.5

^{th}percentiles among all bootstrap based estimates. Our bootstrap sampling method is based on adapting slightly the ‘multivariate linear process bootstrap’ (MLPB) method developed and presented in [27]. The core idea behind our adaptation is same as in ‘DCBootCB’ algorithm presented in [28]. The hypothesis testing framework is based on adapting the statistical tests proposed in [29]. Details of all the approaches are given below.

#### 4.1. Confidence Intervals

^{th}element being $C(i-j)$. Here

^{th}element is ${\Gamma}_{ij}^{\mathrm{JP}}=\kappa (i-j)C(i-j),\phantom{\rule{0.277778em}{0ex}}i,j=1,\dots ,T.$ Here $\kappa $ is a tapering function that leaves the diagonal elements unchanged and downweights the elements farther away from the diagonal. The simplest example (the one used in the simulation study in [27], and also the one used in this paper) is the trapezoid function which leaves the diagonal, super- and supra-diagonal elements unchanged and sets all other elements to zero. This estimation procedure involves a few more technical (but easy to understand) details, mainly to ensure that ${\widehat{\Gamma}}^{\mathrm{JP}}$ is positive definite. We skip these details; a reader interested in these details are referred to [28] or [27]. The steps in MLPB algorithm may be summarized as follows.

- Step 1:
- Let ${Y}_{vec}$ denote the centered ${X}_{vec}$ where the centering for elements in ${[{X}_{1}^{\left(1\right)},\dots ,{X}_{T}^{\left(1\right)}]}^{\prime}$ and in ${[{X}_{2}^{\left(1\right)},\dots ,{X}_{T}^{\left(2\right)}]}^{\prime}$ are done separately.
- Step 2:
- Compute ${W}_{vec}={L}^{-1}{Y}_{vec}$ where L denotes the lower left matrix in Cholesky decomposition ($L{L}^{\prime}$) of ${\widehat{\Gamma}}^{\mathrm{JP}}$.
- Step 3:
- Let ${Z}_{vec}$ be the standardized version of ${W}_{vec}$ obtained by subtracting the mean and dividing by the standard deviation (SD). Here mean and SD are computed from all elements in ${W}_{vec}$.
- Step 4:
- Generate ${Z}_{vec}^{boot}$ by performing i.i.d resampling from ${Z}_{vec}$.
- Step 5:
- Compute ${Y}_{vec}^{boot}=L{Z}_{vec}^{boot}$. Split ${Y}_{vec}^{boot}$ into two separate vectors ${Y}^{\left(i\right),boot},\phantom{\rule{0.277778em}{0ex}}i=1,2$ with ${Y}^{\left(1\right),boot}$ containing the first T elements and ${Y}^{\left(2\right),boot}$ containing the last T elements of ${Y}_{vec}^{boot}$.
- Step 6:
- Add mean of ${X}_{1}^{\left(1\right)},\dots ,{X}_{T}^{\left(1\right)}$ to each element of ${Y}^{\left(1\right),boot}$ to obtain ${X}^{\left(1\right),boot}$. Similarly, add mean of ${X}_{1}^{\left(2\right)},\dots ,{X}_{T}^{\left(2\right)}$ to each element of ${Y}^{\left(2\right),boot}$ to obtain ${X}^{\left(2\right),boot}$. The pair of vectors ${X}^{\left(1\right),boot}$ and ${X}^{\left(2\right),boot}$ are the bootstrap sample pair outputted.

- Step 1:
- Divide the data matrix X into K adjacent blocks, where each block is a $2\times (T/K)$ matrix.
- Step 2:
- For each block run the MLPB algorithm to get a bootstrap sample pair corresponding to that block.
- Step 3:
- Combine the K adjacent blocks of bootstrap sample pairs and apply the WGA algorithm on the combined bootstrap sample pair.
- Step 4:
- Repeat the above steps B times to get B dynamic correlation time series based on the WGA algorithm.
- Step 5:
- At each time point calculate the 2.5
^{th}and 97.5^{th}percentiles among the bootstrap samples to obtain the bootstrap based 95% confidence interval.

#### 4.2. Hypothesis Testing

^{th}percentile value and adding 97.5

^{th}percentile to the corresponding test statistic; here, the percentiles are obtained from among the test statistic values calculated from bootstrap samples. Null hypothesis may be rejected if the 95% confidence interval does not contain zero.

**Figure A3.**LFP time series related to two consecutive time stamps (1024 data points sampled at 1 KHz, approximately 1 sec) from three tetrodes and one electrode. From each of these time series, segments between time points 200 and 400, and between 415 and 600 were cut out and plotted in left and right panels, respectively, of Figure 9. These segments were analyzed for illustrating the dynamic correlation estimation methods.

**Figure A4.**Three plots selected from the pairwise plots in Figure 10. LFP pairs are shown in the left column, the resulting dynamic correlations computed by using the WGA method are shown in the right column. In all cases, the maximum correlation occurs at the time point corresponding to the stimulus artifact. Overall, the highest correlations resulted for the tetrodes 2 and 3 LFPs which are the most similar, while the dynamic correlation between the very different LFPs of tetrode 2 and electrode 4 were dominated by low values.

**Figure A5.**Three plots selected from the pairwise plots in Figure 11. LFP pairs are shown in the left column, the resulting dynamic correlations computed by using the WGA method are shown in the right column. The hippocampal LFPs become more similar after the 50th time point and the dynamic correlations in the top two panels reflect adequately this change. The LFP’s recorded in hippocampus and medial dorsal striatum are very different, a characteristic reflected in the low values of the corresponding dynamic correlation.
