2 I NTRODUCTION Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) is a widely used method to detect the activated brain regions due to a stimulus application. The Blood-Oxygenation-Level-Dependent (BOLD) signal is based on the well-established correlation between neuronal activity, energy metabolism and haemodynamics. The BOLD effect is small and data is noisy, turning this inference problem a difficult task An accurate knowledge of the Haemodynamic Response Function (HRF) to a localized neural stimulus is critical, in order to interpret the fMRI data confidently. 2

3 I NTRODUCTION : M ODEL D ESIGN FOR THE HRF 3 Na,K-ATPase

4 M OTIVATION A Physiologically-Based Haemodynamic linear model for the HRF ( Afonso et al (2007)) the Brain Group modulates the brain cells CMRO 2 and the vascular demand; the Vessel Group modulates the summed effect of CBV and CBF vascular changes on the oxyHb/deoxyHb rate in and around blood vessels; the Control Group for the systemic negative feedback control over vasodilation. 4

5 O BJECTIVES Obtain a practical, tractable and simultaneously accurate mathematical model to describe the neuro-metabolic and neuro-vascular couplings that lead to the BOLD effect. A physiologically-based lineal model describing the relation between the neuronal electrical activity and the ATP dynamics is proposed. 5
