We extended the use of VASO-CBV to pRF mapping modeling. We show that VASO-CBV data can be used reliably to map polar angle and eccentricity, similar to BOLD-based data. In addition, the pRF size increased systematically from V1 to V3 similarly for BOLD and VASO-CBV estimates. The higher microvascular specificity of VASO-CBV did not result in smaller pRF size estimates. This result suggests that the vascular contribution to the pRF size is not dominant in either VASO-CBV or BOLD-based pRF mapping.
