Abstract
We designed a system incorporating the independent measurement of blood flow and oxygenation of haemoglobin. This is based on laser-Doppler spectroscopy with NIR wavelengths which gives a measure for changes in blood flow or tissue perfusion as well as reflectance spectroscopy in the VIS wavelength range for the calculation of the oxygenated and deoxygenated haemoglobin components. The co-registration of these parameters allows the neurovascular coupling of brain to be investigated. This is demonstrated by recording functional activity of the rat brain during electrical forepaw stimulation.
