In a series of functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS
) studies, we previously showed that background music during the episodic encoding of verbal material can improve item and source memory performance and modulate prefrontal cortex (PFC) activity [10, 11].
works by measuring the brain's oxygen levels, as different parts of the brain require different amounts of oxygen depending on current stimuli.
Based on different measuring principle, fNIRS
instruments can be divided into three categories: continuous wave (CW), frequency domain (FD), and time domain (TD).
fMRI or fNIRS
requires a larger space for the equipment, and building the entire system is expensive .
We made a movie (180 seconds in total) which showed a male demonstrator, with fNIRS
and SCR recording sets on the head and the back of right hand, respectively.
In this study, a method based on fNIRS
signals is proposed, to identify the motion intention of two-dimensional variables of walking speed and step length simultaneously under the normal environment.
For the study, 26 participants wore fNIRS
headbands while they completed three different art activities (each with rest periods between).

The number of neuroimaging studies using functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS
) has increased recently.
The technique, known as functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS
), is a crude brain imager compared with its better-known cousin, fMRI.
