FNIRSoft optical brain imageThis webinar is ideal for new and experienced researchers using Functional Near Infrared Spectroscopy (fNIRS) in their studies or for individuals who wish to improve their understanding of strategies and techniques available for obtaining and analyzing great optical brain imaging data. Optical brain imaging technology provides researchers with a powerful method to study a variety of brain functions, including (but not limited to) attention, working memory, planning, decision making, problem-solving, etc. Cognitive Optical Brain Imaging (COBI) Studio is a hardware integrated software platform designed for functional Near Infrared (fNIR) Spectroscopy imaging systems. fNIRSOFT is a stand-alone software package designed to process, analyze and visualize functional near-infrared spectroscopy signals through a graphical user interface and/or scripting (for automation). In this webinar hosted by BIOPAC Systems and fNIR Devices, BIOPAC and fNIR Devices representatives and experts from academia will provide viewers with in-depth “how to” techniques, tips, and procedures for using these two powerful software tools to obtain and analyze great optical brain imaging data.

Experiment Setup and Data Acquisition
