fNIR Education System
Part #: fNIR103E

The fNIRS Education System is a complete solution for educators, including curriculum materials, hardware, and software to record, process, and analyze up to 6 optodes of NIR spectroscopy (NIRS) data. The stand-alone fNIRS Imaging System provides in-lab cognitive function assessment and eliminates a great many of the drawbacks of a functional MRI.

fNIRS optical imaging technology measures neural activity and hemodynamic response in the prefrontal cortex. Subjects wear an fNIR sensor (IR light sources and detectors mounted in a flexible band) on the forehead that detects oxygen levels in the prefrontal cortex and provides real-time values for oxyhemoglobin and deoxygenated hemoglobin. It provides a continuous and real-time display of the oxygen changes as the subject performs different tasks.

Subjects can sit in front of a computer and take a test or perform mobile tasks. fNIRS applications include Brain Computer Interface, Human Performance Assessment, Neurorehabilitation, Depth of Anesthesia Monitoring, and more.

fNIR Education Systems for continuous NIR spectroscopy (NIRS) include

  • Imager 2000E control unit (6-optodes max)
  • Sensor and Cable
    • fNIR2000E includes one 6-channel sensor and one sensor cable
  • fNIRSoft and COBl Software
    • Software for data collection and analysis (the included software may change with a 30-day notice; if the included the software changes the existing licensees will receive the replacement software)
  • NIRS Labs for Brain Function and Muscle Oxygenation
    • Lessons F01-F04 provide step-by-step guides for 9 student-friendly exercises measuring changes in deoxygenated (Hb) and oxygenated (HbO2) hemoglobin during cognitive and neuromuscular tasks. Students record NIRS measurements from the forehead and the forearm at two wavelengths, 730 nm for deoxy-Hb and 850 nm for oxy-Hb.

  • F04 fNIRS Measurements During Single and Dual Tasks: Exercise 1 Single and Dual Tasks

A license upgrade will be available to add new lesson materials when they are released.

fNIRS lessons prepare students for professions in clinical and research settings, including:

  • Psychology
  • Neuroscience

  • Physical therapy
  • Speech pathology
  • Education
  • Biomedical engineering

Imager 2000E Specs

  • Max Sources: 2
  • Max Detectors: 6
  • Max Sampling Frequency: 2 Hz
  • Wireless: no
  • Synchronization ports: no
  • Dimensions: 106 mm x 32 mm x 106 mm

The fNIRS data combines with other physiological variables such as ECG, respiration, cardiac output, blood pressure, electrodermal activit, and stimulus response markers. AcqKnowledge software provides automated analysis tools for event-related potentials (ERP) and ensemble averaging. Combining the fNIRS data with other physiological signals provides researchers with a detailed subject assessment.

fNIRSoft (fS) Software & COBI Studio

fS is a software package for use with the 2000E Imager for Education Systems. Use fS viewer and data management tools to process, analyze, and visualize functional near infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) signals. View data in real time and perform post-acquisition analysis.

COBI Studio “Cognitive Optical Brain Imaging” software is designed for performing serial experiments and makes it easy to start recording, and to save all experimental data (fNIRS, synchronization markers from external presentation stimuli, etc.) in a standardized way.


For additional details, review these items under the Support tab:

  • fNIR and COBI Studio User Guide for data collection guidelines
  • fNIRSOFT User Manual for a step-by-step guide for using fS, with an introduction to fNIRS technology and a discussion of the Modified Beer Lambert Law (MBLL) that is integral to the analysis of fNIR spectroscopy signals
