Cerebrovascular reactivity (CVR) is an important measure of vascular function, but true variability in CVR can be masked by numerous confounds. We explore the variability of CVR maps, extracted using breath-holding and resting state data, over 9 weekly scanning sessions. Our results show that CVR demonstrates robust spatial patterns that vary across known neural networks.
