Abstract:Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) using blood oxygenation level dependent (BOLD) signals is a tool that is currently used in many cognitive neuroscience studies. However, many studies do not consider susceptibility-induced magnetic field gradients. Susceptibility-induced magnetic field gradients can vary echo time, which can also vary BOLD sensitivity. In order to correct artifacts, we introduce percent signal change and calibration function. We show calibration can reduce the artifacts and can be applied in many studies such as age-related studies.
