Cerebrovascular reactivity (CVR) mapping is finding increasing clinical applications as a non-invasive probe for vascular health. Further analysis extracting temporal delay information from the CVR response provide additional insight that reflect arterial transit time, blood redistribution, and vascular response speed. Untangling these factors can help better understand the (patho)physiology and improve diagnosis/prognosis associated with vascular impairments. Here, we use hypercapnic (HC) and…

Medullary vein architecture modulates the white matter BOLD cerebrovascular reactivity signal response to CO2: observations from high-resolution T2* weighted imaging at 7T
TLDR
Results indicate that changes in the response shape may only be partially reflective of the actual vascular reactivity response occurring further upstream by control vessels, which may have implications when attributing diseases mechanisms and/or progression to presumed impaired WM BOLD-CVR.
Quantifying cerebral blood arrival times using hypoxia-mediated arterial BOLD contrast
TLDR
The BOLD signal contrast established by precisely modulating arterial hemoglobin saturation using hypoxic respiratory challenges (dOHb-BOLD) is exploited to quantify arterial blood arrival times throughout the brain to provide a valuable compliment to clinical vascular reactivity measures.
Cerebral blood flow, cerebrovascular reactivity and their influence on ventilatory sensitivity
TLDR
Recent animal evidence suggests central chemoreceptor vasculature may demonstrate regionally heterogeneous cerebrovascular reactivity to CO2, potentially as a protective mechanism against excessive CO2 washout from the centralChemoreceptors, thereby allowing ventilation to reflect the systemic acid–base balance needs (respiratory changes in PaCO2 ) rather than solely the cerebral needs.

Measuring vascular reactivity with breath‐holds after stroke: A method to aid interpretation of group‐level BOLD signal changes in longitudinal fMRI studies
TLDR
The feasibility of using a recently validated breath‐hold task in patients with stroke, both to assess group level changes in cerebrovascular reactivity (CVR) and to determine if alterations in regional CVR over time will adversely affect interpretation of task‐related BOLD signal changes are demonstrated.

TLDR
The improved calibration alternatives to neuronal activation were applied, making use of their distinct vasoactive natures to evaluate the α-value, highlighting a reduced venous flow—volume relationship.
Cerebrovascular Reactivity in the Brain White Matter: Magnitude, Temporal Characteristics, and Age Effects
TLDR
Evaluating vasodilatory capacity of the WM vasculature, which is thought to be important in tissue ischemia and autoregulation, suggests that characteristics of WM CVR are different from that of GM and caution should be used when interpreting pathologicWM CVR results.

TLDR
The findings indicate that changes in BAT values may bias functional ASL data and thus should be considered when choosing appropriate experimental parameters in calibrated functional magnetic resonance imaging or ASL cerebrovascular reactivity experiments that use hypercarbic gas stimuli.
