The blood perfusion and protein contents in brain of healthy subjects were measured in this study by 3D pseudo continuous arterial spin labeling and 3D amide proton transfer weighted imaging. Results showed a negative correlation between blood perfusion and the content of mobile cellular proteins and peptides in brain of heathy subjects; and the blood perfusion in normal brain, rather than the protein content, showed a significant dependence to age.
