Changes in Blood Oxygenation as a Function of Perfectionism—APS Presentation

fNIR SensorChanges in Blood Oxygenation as a function of perfectionism, mental health, and cognitive performance was the topic of Michael Lynch’s poster presentation at the Association for Psychological Science Annual Conference 2016.

The presentation reviews their study to identify possible determinants of activity in the Dorsolateral Prefrontal Cortex for perfectionist tendencies, symptoms characteristics for mental health, and cognitive performance. fNIR systems were used to measure neural activity while subjects performed two separate cognitive performance tasks.
