order to quantify the hemodynamic contributions to the BOLD fMRI signal in
humans, it is necessary to adopt a computational model that resembles the cortical
vasculature and mimics hemodynamic changes triggered by neurovascular coupling.
simulation of the local magnetic disturbance induced by the geometry, hemodynamic
changes, and the biophysical properties of the tissues can provide accurate insights
on the physiological fingerprint of the BOLD fMRI signal.
this work, based on a realistic 3D computational approach of the human cortical
vasculature, we simulate the biophysical effects produced by hemodynamic
changes to compute a dynamic BOLD fMRI signal response.
