fMRI measures differences between the Fe content in blood based on the metal’s response to the magnetic field.
OT relies on different light absorption characteristics of the two forms.
Lower spatial resolution than fMRI
2mm vs. 20mm
Higher temporal resolution than fMRI
1 Sec vs. 1 mSec
OT does not measure exact blood volume concentrations; it measures concentration changes of molecular species, including oxyhemoglobin and deoxyhemoglobin.
