In this study, we used the “cortical vascular model” for human V1 at 7T to simulate the laminar VAscular-Space-Occupancy (VASO) signal change. For comparison, we conducted VASO experiments on a group of healthy subjects to measure laminar signal change in V1. Results show a very good agreement between the model prediction and the experimental results once the volume changes of the different vascular compartments (arterioles, capillaries, venules) are taken into account.
