While the BOLD contrast is widely applied to map brain activity, it is also fundamentally limited as it provides only an indirect measure of neural activation that cannot be straightforwardly quantified and is inherently limited in its spatial specificity. Consequently, alternative methods have evolved to address such limitations. Here, we will primarily focus on measurements of CBF and CBV changes as currently popular ‘non-BOLD’ contrasts in human fMRI studies of the neurovascular coupling or at laminar resolution.
