Given the wide range of locations and environments in which epidemiological studies take place, it is important to use caution when preparing to incorporate fNIRS into study designs.
In preparing for this study, our team recognized multiple methodological challenges--including identification of neurobehavioral domains of interest, functional (brain) regions of interest, fNIRS task selection, and testing environment--that required thoughtful planning to adequately address.
But data generated by the fNIRS
readings provide only a small piece of the puzzle.
Tenders are invited for Supply of Wireless Fnirs
(fuctbnal Near Infra Red Spectroscopy) System
is a noninvasive optical technique that measures oxygen levels in the brain to chart neurological activity.
Studies under way at NASA's Glenn Research Center in Cleveland are employing functional near infrared spectroscopy, also know as fNIRS
, and other imaging technology to measure blood flow in the brain's cortex and the concentration of oxygen in the blood.
The department of Psychology requires a state-of-the-art fNIRS
device with a proved research record in monitoring functional activation in adults.
Because infant cognitive development is tightly intertwined with brain development we investigate effects of sensitivity on the neural underpinnings of socio-cognitive development, using fNIRS
to image brain activity.
Study 2 tests the congruence in brain activation between reaching performance and observation while infants brain responses are measured using fNIRS
