Place: Moore Hall, Room B03

video of Diamond talk


Functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) provides high temporal resolution measurements of concentration changes in cerebral oxyhemoglobin and deoxyhemoglobin. This information is complementary to other neuroimaging methods such as function magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and electroencephalography (EEG) and can be acquired simultaneously with these other methods. This talk will provide an introduction to the fundamentals of fNIRS) and its capabilities and limitations for studying human brain function. Methods for multimodal neuroimaging using fNIRS with EEG and fMRI will be explained. Examples will be drawn from an ongoing study of neuromuscular coupling in patients with multiple sclerosis.
