Paper Abstract

Nervous system relies on a continuous and adequate supply of blood flow, bringing the nutrients that it needs and removing the waste products of metabolism. Failure of these mechanisms is found in a number of devastating cerebral diseases, including stroke, vascular dementia, brain injury and trauma. Vasomotion which is the spontaneous low-frequency oscillation derived by the contraction and relaxation of arterioles and appears to be an intrinsic property of the cerebral vasculature, is important for monitoring the cerebral flow, tissue metabolism and health status of brain tissue. In the present study, we investigated a method to visualize the spontaneous low-frequency oscillation of cerebral blood volume based on the sequential RGB images of exposed brain.
