We used 3D-EPI VASO to simultaneously measure CBV and BOLD signal changes in the primary motor cortex. We aimed to investigate differences in neurovascular coupling as measured by BOLD and CBV signal changes during a hand movement task with increasing movement rates. In agreement with previous findings, the BOLD response was found to behave nonlinearly with respect to the movement rate. Remarkably, the CBV response amplitude also shows a similar and strong nonlinear behavior where the amplitude saturates at fast movement rates (≥ 1 Hz).
