Functional Near-Infrared Optical Imaging (fNIR) provides insights on cognitive brain function and is appealing to researchers studying attention, memory, planning, and problem-solving in natural settings, in the lab, or in the field. This technology—which is much more affordable than fMRI—is used in hemodynamic response & neural activity, optical brain imaging, cognition (e.g., working memory, decision-making processes, mental fatigue), neuroergonomics, neuromarketing, and muscle oxygenation studies.
Join BIOPAC for this webinar to learn more about the newest fNIR technology and how cognitive researchers are using it for scientific discovery. Alex Dimov of BIOPAC and Davood Tashayyod of fNIR Devices present the strengths and capabilities of using fNIR technology in research.
What you will learn:
Applications of fNIR technology
Proper setup of equipment for optimal data collections in each application area
Prefrontal cortex imaging
fNIR and muscle oxygenation
Plus, see a LIVE DEMO of the latest fNIR equipment including the new Mobile fNIR System.
Alex Dimov (BIOPAC Systems, Inc.) has been teaching workshops on the topic of physiological data acquisition and analysis for nearly 15 years. While at UC Santa Barbara he was an instructor for The Advanced Training Institute for Virtual Reality in Social Psychology. He joined BIOPAC as an application specialist and now oversees European Sales for BIOPAC.
Davood Tashayyod stewarded fNIR Devices LLC, from a start-up company in 2009 to the premier supplier of low-cost functional near-infrared brain imaging systems—now used in research institutes around the world.
Basic principles of physiological data collection covers fundamentals of data collection and equipment configuration equipment to help you refine experiment protocols and avoid costly missteps. Frazer Findlay, CEO of BIOPAC, discusses common mistakes with physiology recording and shares his secrets for collecting great data. Topics include: How to prep a subject and where to place electrodes; Which type of electrodes work for different body signals; Analog to Digital Conversion; Sample rates (correct vs. incorrect); Filtering; and Scaling and calibration.Watch On Demand Now!
A System to Measure Physiological Response During Social Interaction in VR Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) have a difficult experience in responding to social cues and actions. This pilot study measured the effectiveness of Virtual Reality in creating a social environment for children, measured with a BIOPAC MP Series data acquisition system and Worldviz […]
