Univariate and bivariate time series analysis techniques have enabled new insights into neural processes. However, these techniques are not feasible to distinguish direct and indirect interrelations in multivariate systems. To this aim multivariate times series techniques are presented and investigated by means of simulated as well as physiological time series. Pitfalls and limitations of these techniques are discussed.
