One vessel and two vessel geometries and resistance networks. a One vessel model diagram showing the modeled section of a cortical arteriole and its surrounding PVS and parenchyma. The hydraulic resistors are labeled R# and the volumetric fluid sources are labeled IA#. The graphs allude to how PVS inner radius (green arrow) variation displaces fluid volume into the PVS and parenchyma at a certain flow rate (Eqs. 4 and 5). b Two vessel model diagram showing the modeled region (green rectangle) of a hypothetical cortical slice containing an arteriole and vein. The hydraulic resistors are labeled R# and the volumetric fluid sources are labeled IA# and IV#
