Exploring neuro-vascular and neuro-metabolic coupling in rat somatosensory cortex.

Abstract

The existence of a coupling between changes in neuronal activity, cerebral blood flow and blood oxygenation is well known. The explicit relationship between these systems, however, is complex and remains a subject of intense research. Here, we use direct electrophysiological recordings to predict blood flow and oxygenation changes measured with optical… (More)
