Changes of Blood Flow and Oxygen Consumption in Visual Cortex of Living Humans
The classical model of neuronal metabolism holds that changes in local neuronal activity are reflected in changes of blood flow (rCBF) and oxygen metabolism (rCMRO2). This model has been examined in human PET [1,2] and animal  studies.
