Materials and Methods: Twenty healthy volunteers (mean age: 23.6 6 3.7 years, 11 women) were subjected to a functional paradigm composed of five epochs of auditory stimulus (3 sec) intercalated by six intervals of rest (21 sec). Two levels of hypercapnia were achieved by a combination of air and CO2 while the end-tidal CO2 (ETCO2) was continually measured. An autoregressive method was applied to analyze four parameters of the BOLD signal: onset-time, time-to-peak, full-width-at-halfmaximum (FWHM), and amplitude. Results: BOLD onset time (P < 0.001) and full-width at half-maximum (FWHM) (P < 0.05) increased linearly, while BOLD amplitude decreased (P < 0.001) linearly with increasing levels of hypercapnia. Test–retest for reproducibility in five subjects revealed excellent concordance for onset time and amplitude. Conclusion: The robust linear dependence of BOLD onset time, FWHM, and amplitude to hypercapnia suggest future application of this protocol in clinical studies aimed at evaluating CVR of the MCA territory.
