Estimating the functional topology of a network from multivariate observations is an important task in nonlinear dynamics. We introduce the nonparametric partial directed coherence that allows disentanglement of direct and indirect connections and their directions. We illustrate the performance of the nonparametric partial directed coherence by means of a simulation with data from synchronized nonlinear oscillators and apply it to real-world data from a patient suffering from essential tremor.
