Current understanding of blood oxygenation level dependent (BOLD) fMRI physiology predicts a close relationship between BOLD signal and blood hematocrit level. However, neither this relationship nor its effect on BOLD percent activation (BPA) has been empirically examined in man. To that end, BPA in primary visual cortex in response to photic stimulation(More)
OBJECTIVE Studies of depressed adults have shown abnormalities in cerebral energy metabolism, as noted by low brain levels of nucleoside triphosphate (NTP), which primarily represents adenosine triphosphate (ATP). This study was undertaken to determine whether proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy (1H MRS) measures of the low-field purine resonance, which(More)
