Multimodal SPA-fNIRS

Wednesday, June 21, 2023

On-Demand Playback


Learn how to add multimodal and systemic physiological augmented (SPA) fNIRS and EEG to your research.

fNIRS gives a measure of various components – from evoked to spontaneous systemic and vascular activities – in both the cerebral and extracerebral compartments. We will demonstrate how to combine fNIRS with external systemic physiological sensors in order to improve the fNIRS signal. SPA-fNIRS allows researchers to record evoked changes in brain hemodynamics as measured by fNIRS.

Join us to understand how systemic physiological activity monitoring enhances the interpretation of fNIRS signals.

You will learn the following:

  • The fundamentals of fNIRS and methods for multimodal acquisition: The case of ‘augmented fNIRS’
  • Tips on how to design multimodal fNIRS recordings and how to remove the systemic physiological activity.
  • How to integrate MedelOpt with BIOPAC devices for multimodal data acquisition.

Marion | SeenelAbout Marion A. Vincent

Dr. Marion Vincent obtained her Ph. D. in 2017 from the University of Montpellier and the National Institute for Research in Digital Science and Technology, France.
During her PhD, she focused on the evaluation of the electrophysiological effects of Direct Electrical Stimulation of the brain during low grade glioma surgery (supervision of Prof. F. Bonnetblanc and Senior SCI. D. Guiraud).
In 2018, she obtained a permanent Research Engineer position at the CNRS and the SCALab of Lille University, France. Since then, she has dedicated her expertise in brain signal acquisition and analysis to engineering developments for affective and cognitive neurosciences.
She has joined Seenel Imaging as a Neuroscience Application Specialist in early 2023, to work on the new bimodal neuroimaging EEG/fNIRS device MedelOpt, combining electrophysiological and hemodynamic responses.
