fnir oprical brain imaging for in-lab cognitive assessment

fNIR functional near infrared optical imaging systems measure oxygen level changes in the prefrontal cortex of human subjects. Each fNIR system provides real-time monitoring of tissue oxygenation in the brain as subjects take tests, perform tasks, or receive stimulation and allows researchers to quantitatively assess brain functions—such as attention, memory, planning, and problem solving—while individuals perform cognitive tasks. The fNIR device provides relative change in hemoglobin levels, calculated using a modified Beer-Lambert law.

This is one of many ADVANCED FEATURES for the selected Application. Scroll down for hardware options.

The powerful fNIR spectroscopy imaging tool measures NIR light absorbance in blood of hemoglobin with and without oxygen and provides information about ongoing brain activity similar to functional MRI studies. It eliminates many of the drawbacks of fMRI and provides a safe, affordable, noninvasive solution for cognitive function assessment. The technology empowers researchers by providing greater flexibility for study design, including working within complex lab environments and operating in non-traditional lab locations for field studies.

Physiological Lung Testing in the MRI to Find Damage from Military Deployments Our military veterans who served overseas in the middle east often come home with scars both seen and unseen. For some vets, unfortunately, these scars can take the form of lung damage sustained due to sandstorms, burn pits, and other high toxicity situations apparent […]
