Cerebral blood volume (CBV) is
related with cerebral blood flow (CBF), and knowing this relationship may play
an important role in quantitative BOLD-fMRI studies. A recent MRI study
reports a varied CBV-CBF relationship both spatially and with sex. This
study investigated the behaviors of CBV and CBF across the visual cortex at
both rest and activation states, and the analysis showed a spatially
inhomogeneous CBV-CBF relationship across the visual cortex.
