An Attempt to Explain Multivariate Bayes Analysis

MVB is a relatively new technique in SPM to look at fMRI data from a different perspective. Rather than 'Let's see if Stimulus A causes brain activity B', it flips the question to 'Based on brain activity B, what can that tell us about how stimulus A is encoded'. Here I will try to explain what kinds of questions can be asked (and answered) using the technique, what it actually does, and how to use it.
