After completion of this work, we became aware of a paper by Yoshiyuki Sato, Taro Toyoizumi and Kazuyuki Aihara, who independently developed a similar model (Neural Computation, in press).

This excellent paper has just appeared in NC. I highly recommend reading this paper as it exposes many additional issues and shows the strength of the causal inference approach in partially overlapping and partially non-overlapping areas.

I have done some informal comparisons of their results and ours and indeed the model predictions are very similar.
