In this abstract, we offer a systemic characterization of the spatiotemporal patterns of fMRI signals subsequent to slow fluctuations in respiratory volume and heart rate. We show that these slow physiological dynamics contain structured network patterns that are somewhat consistent across individuals. We also show that global signal regression (GSR) may introduce anti-correlating patterns of the physiological dynamics to the final observations of functional connectivity.
