Estimating cerebral oxygen metabolism from fMRI with a dynamic multicompartment Windkessel model
A physiologically motivated vascular model is utilized to describe the temporal characteristics of evoked hemodynamic responses and their expected relationships to the structural and biomechanical properties of the underlying vasculature in the brain.
A Model for Transient Oxygen Delivery in Cerebral Cortex
A model that explains the full time-course of tissue oxygen responses in visual cortex following brief visual stimulation is introduced, giving insight into the dynamics of cerebral oxygen transfer, and can serve as the starting point to understand BOLD fMRI measurements.
Arterial impulse model for the BOLD response to brief neural activation
Mechanistic Mathematical Modeling Tests Hypotheses of the Neurovascular Coupling in fMRI
Model structures describing the metabolic feedback and the neurotransmitter feed-forward hypotheses were applied to measured BOLD responses in the visual cortex of 12 healthy volunteers and obtained a new model structure which is able to fit the estimation data and successfully predict new, independent validation data.
From Blood Oxygenation Level Dependent (BOLD) Signals to Brain Temperature Maps
A theoretical framework is presented for converting Blood Oxygenation Level Dependent (BOLD) images to brain temperature maps, based on the idea that disproportional local changes in cerebral blood
Neural coupling mechanism in fMRI hemodynamics
The results demonstrated that the negative energy mechanism, which was previously reported by the group using Wang–Zhang neuronal model, played a vital role in governing brain hemodynamics, and precisely predicted the neural coupling mechanism between the energy metabolism and blood flow changes in the brain under stimulation.
Physiological models comparison for the analysis of ASL FMRI data
Arterial Spin Labelling data is analysed to compare the impact of different settings in the coupling between blood flow and hemodynamic response, and several competing versions of the hemodynamic model and different physiological parameters values have been described in the literature.


Nonlinear temporal dynamics of the cerebral blood flow response
The perfusion response in primary motor and visual cortices was measured during stimulation using an arterial spin labeling technique with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) that allows simultaneous measurement of CBF and BOLD changes, and the CBF response was found in general to be nonlinearly related to stimulus duration, although the strength of nonlinearity varied between the motor andVisual cortices.
The roles of changes in deoxyhemoglobin concentration and regional cerebral blood volume in the fMRI BOLD signal
A Model of the Coupling between Brain Electrical Activity, Metabolism, and Hemodynamics: Application to the Interpretation of Functional Neuroimaging
By studying the effect of the variation of some physiologically important parameters on the time course of the modeled blood-oxygenation-level-dependent (BOLD) signal, hypotheses about the physiological or biochemical significance of functional magnetic resonance data are formed.
New Insights into the Hemodynamic Blood Oxygenation Level-Dependent Response through Combination of Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Optical Recording in Gerbil Barrel Cortex
Fast, low-angle shoot functional magnetic resonance imaging was combined with optical recording of intrinsic signals (ORIS) and 2-deoxyglucose labeling in gerbil barrel cortex to show that a positive BOLD signal can be caused by a local increase of blood volume, even if deoxyhemoglobin levels are persistently elevated.

The model provides a basis for the quantitative interpretation of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) studies in terms of changes in local CBF, and predicts that disproportionately large changes in blood flow are required in order to support small changes in the O2 metabolic rate.
Changes of Cerebral Blood Flow, Oxygenation, and Oxidative Metabolism during Graded Motor Activation
Comparable proportionality constants have been found in the visual cortex and primary sensory cortex, indicating similarities between the relationship of CBF and CMRO(2) in various cortical regions.
A Model of the Hemodynamic Response and Oxygen Delivery to Brain
A model of the coupling between flow and oxygen delivery which takes into account the modulatory effect of changes in tissue oxygen concentration is described and the differences in the performance of the "Friston system" using the original model of Buxton and Frank and that of the model are compared.
Functional magnetic resonance imaging based on changes in vascular space occupancy
Comparison of the hemodynamic responses of VASO‐fMRI, cerebral blood flow (CBF)‐based fMRI, and blood oxygenation level‐dependent (BOLD) fMRI indicates both arteriolar and venular temporal characteristics in VASo.
