Description of the steps of the Mantel test with which the association between inter-subject similarity in experienced humorousness and inter-subject similarity in brain hemodynamic activity is measured.

Subject-pair wise ISCs of brain hemodynamic time series (over the duration of the movie clip) are first calculated for each voxel. The resulting vector of ISCs is then correlated with vector of subject-pair wise ISC of humorousness self-ratings. This step is repeated for each voxel and overlaid on across-subjects averaged anatomical volumes to render three-dimensional statistical parametric maps.
