Resting-state fMRI (R-fMRI) is powerful for mapping
networks. Since oscillations in metabolic/neural events
are linked to R-fMRI networks and studies suggest that
absolute metabolic/neural baseline interacts with
evoked/spontaneous signals, we measured blood flow,
neural activity, glucose oxidation, glutamatergic
neurotransmission, and BOLD in relation to two states.
Fluctuations in metabolic/neural activities underlying
connectivity maps, regardless of the state, represented
at most 5% of the total baseline metabolic/neural level.
Functional correlation density (FCD) maps, not
seed-based correlation maps, showed significant
alteration between the states in accord with other
absolute measures of states, signifying the importance
of FCD and absolute baseline in R-fMRI.
