In science:

BOLD MRI has been used in assessing the brain’s response to hypercapnia [110, 5].
A Quantum Mechanical Review of Magnetic Resonance Imaging
Hypercapnia can cause changes in multiple variables in the brain such as cerebral blood flow, oxygen consumption rate, cerebral blood volume, arterial oxygen concentration, and red blood cell volume fraction.
A Quantum Mechanical Review of Magnetic Resonance Imaging
However, hypercapnia-associated cerebrovascular reactivity has been strongly correlated with arterial spin labeling and other PWI surrogates, suggesting that the brain’s reaction to hypercapnia is dominated by changes in cerebral blood flow .
