fnirSoft (fS) is a stand-alone software package designed to process, analyze and visualize functional near-infrared spectroscopy signals through both graphical user interface and/or scripting. This document provides an introductory tutorial for fnirSoft scripting (programming).
fS script is a data-driven functional programming language for neuroimaging data and was designed to do more with less code and be both readable by humans and computers. The idea is to write simple procedural text to easily manage and automate data processing for scientific computing.
fS Script takes advantage of neuroimaging data structure and using intrinsic language features and commands to eliminate repetitive and error-prone elements that would be necessary to process data in other languages.
fS Script is also aimed to help repeatable research by standardizing functional neuroimaging signal processing steps and helping to establish conventions that can be replicated over time on different datasets.
Eyes are the window to the soul and, more importantly, the brain. Psychophysiology, neuroscience, and consumer neuroscience researchers use eye tracking technology to understand emotion, behavior, subject response, decision-making, and human performance—and to help improve products and services. But not everyone knows where to start or how and why to use this important technology. A panel of eye tracking experts will present typical use cases and the latest eye tracking technology.
Join this online presentation with Q&A to learn the fundamentals of eye tracking!
Effects of MDMA on attention to positive social cues for behavioral disorders The psychostimulant drug 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA) reportedly produces distinctive feelings of empathy, closeness with others and increased social behavior. Researchers are exploring the potential of this chemical for treatment of psychiatric disorders, such as autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). This […]
