Neuronal activity leads to increases in local cerebral blood flow (CBF) to allow adequate supply of O2 and nutrients to active neurons. This process, termed neurovascular coupling (NVC), is essential for cognition and survival and is disrupted in neurodegenerative disorders. In addition, several functional neuroimaging techniques utilize NVC to probe brain function in animals and humans. Despite significant, but fragmented and sometimes contradictory findings, we are still far from reaching a comprehensive understanding of NVC.
