We used inverse imaging to spatiotemporally characterize the relative latency and variability of the BOLD signal at human visual cortex with 0.1 s precision. The relative BOLD latency in the left and right visual cortex was 0.12 (s) +/- 0.33 (s). The BOLD variability in the left and right visual cortex was 0.39 (s) +/- 0.25 (s). Local relative BOLD latency was linearly related to local BOLD variability. The least variability (< 0.2 s) and the earliest onset of the BOLD signal were found at the trough of the calcarine sulcus.
