Valsalva-induced elevation of intracranial pressure selectively decouples deoxygenated hemoglobin concentration from neuronal activation and functional brain imaging capability
Abstract During neuronal activation, neurovascular coupling leads to a local decrease of deoxygenated hemoglobin concentration (deoxy-Hb) and thus forms the basis of many functional brain mapping methods. In animals, an elevated intracranial pressure (ICP) can attenuate or even reverse this deoxy-Hb signaling. To study the effect of an elevated ICP on functional brain imaging in humans, we used different breathing tasks to modify ICP and analyzed the resulting effect on neurovascular coupling in the motor cortex. Functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) was performed on 45 subjects during alternating conditions of finger tapping and resting state combined with four different breathing maneuvers (normal breathing (NB), breath holding without Valsalva maneuver (BH), Valsalva maneuver with 15 mm Hg forced expiratory pressure against resistance (V15) and Valsalva maneuver with 35 mm Hg forced expiratory pressure against resistance (V35)) in randomized order. With escalation of breathing tasks the median amplitude of the functional deoxy-Hb decrease during finger tapping became smaller. In contrast, functional oxygenated hemoglobin concentration (oxy-Hb) and total hemoglobin concentration (total-Hb) responses did not show a significant alteration. The functional oxy-Hb map evoked by finger tapping withstood Valsalva challenges while the functional deoxy-Hb map identified the correct motor cortex in normal breathing conditions only and did not reveal a functional contrast during Valsalva maneuvers. In summary, we conclude that during ICP elevation, deoxy-Hb is not a reliable basis for functional brain imaging. This suggests that the validity of BOLD fMRI during increased ICP might be impaired. Highlights fNIRS was performed on human subjects during ICP elevation by graded Valsalva maneuvers with an without finger tapping. The amplitude of the functional deoxy-Hb concentration decrease in motor cortex was reduced by this ICP elevation. A sustained oxy-Hb concentration increase during ICP elevation indicated an otherwise intact neurovascular coupling. fNIRS measured oxy-Hb provided robust functional maps in motor cortex during ICP elevation. In contrast, fNIRS based deoxy-Hb functional maps became smaller in size and significance during increased ICP.
