The extraction of heart rate and other vital parameters from video recordings of a person has attracted much attention over the last years. In this paper, we examine time differences between distinct spatial regions using remote photoplethysmography (rPPG) in order to extract the blood flow path through human skin tissue in the neck and face. We can show that the visualization of the blood flow path corresponds to the physiologically defined path.
