A simultaneous acquisition of VASO, ASL and BOLD signals was employed to measure relative functional changes induced by a block-designed, black-and-white checkerboard visual task containing three stimulus frequencies and two oxygen-level conditions. We report that 1) δCBV, δCBF and δBOLD increase along with visual stimulus frequencies for both oxygen-level conditions; 2) δBOLD, but not δCBV or δCBF, acquired under hypoxia condition is significantly lower than that acquired under normoxia condition for all the three stimulus frequencies. According to Fick’s principle, our results predict increases of oxygen consumption rate among various stimulus frequencies during hypoxia.
