Neuronal interactions lead to behavior and cognition, so that investigating the interactions in the brain network is essential to understanding brain function. However, approaches that characterize the causal relationships between neuronal time series — causal functional connectivity — have not been well investigated. In this work, we develop methodology for inferring the causal functional connectivity between neurons. The methodology at the core relies on adapting the PC algorithm, a state-of-the-art method for statistical causal inference, to the neuronal time series scenario. We validate the performance of the method in synthetic signals generated from continuous time artificial neural networks. We further obtain the causal functional connectivity between neurons in mice brain under different visual stimuli from electro-physiological neural recordings.
