Resting-state fMRI, particular based on Blood-Oxygenation-Level-Dependent (BOLD) signal, has been extensively used to measure functional connectivity (FC) in the brain. A recent report proposed that FC can also be evaluated from hypercapnia BOLD image. In this work, we aim to systematically compare FC derived from hypercapnia BOLD data with those obtained from traditional resting-state BOLD data in a large cohort (170 healthy participants). Our results suggest that the hypercapnia and resting-state FC maps are spatially correlated across voxels, amplitude-wise correlated across subjects.
