Depth-resolved fMRI is an emerging field growing in popularity given the potential of separating feedforward from feedback signals. When employing line-scanning methods, we sacrifice coverage in order to sample BOLD-responses with ultra-high temporal and spatial resolution. With a limited field-of-view being targeted, one needs to know precisely where to place the line. Here we describe a multi-session approach that combines functional and structural information for an optimal acquisition of line-scanning data based on user-defined properties. We show its feasibility of obtaining hemodynamic response functions of a specific cortical patch.
