The BOLD MR imaging was performed at quadriceps to
understand the hemodynamics at volitional exercise (VE)
and neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES).
Near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) was used to measure
the total, deoxy- and oxy- hemoglobin concentrations to
understand the mechanism of muscle hemodynamics.
Measured NIRS data was then used for calculation of BOLD
signal and compared to the BOLD MRI.
