Inter-regional BOLD latency between visual and sensimotor cortices were first monitored with fast fMRI (TR=0.1 s) and then calibrated for vascular reactivity using a breath-holding task. Significant delayed response (left: t=4.0, p=0.0019; right: t=6.0, p<0.0001) in the sensorimotor cortex was observed than the visual cortex was detected after removing the vascular confound. Significant correlation between reaction time (428 ± 41ms) and the inter-regional BOLD timing difference (432 ± 149ms) was found within and across subjects.
