fNIRS Lesson License
Part #: FNIRSLESSON-LIC

Add fNIRS Lessons to a C Series Imager

Record NIRS measurements from the forehead and the forearm at two wavelengths, 730 nm for deoxy-Hb and 850 nm for oxy-Hb.

Students embark on real-world NIRS research using a student-friendly approach in these four guided lessons covering nine experiments. COBI Modern makes NIRS experimentation easy for students to start recording in under five minutes, and you can also use it to create your own lessons. For analysis, fNIRSoft includes tools for processing data and statistical analysis. Users can also import files in Excel and Matlab.

BIOPAC’s NIRS lessons are derived from scientific publications, providing students the opportunity to repeat well-known physiological phenomenon, such as in the cuff-occlusion task, and discover trends in cognitive function among individuals.

fNIRS-KEY21Each fNIRS Lesson License provides a USB drive with the following:

  1. Digital manual for fNIRSoft and COBI Modern (MANFNIRSEDU)
  2. fNIRS Lesson PDFs for F01-F04 — Restricted printing and copying
  3. Separated Analysis Procedures (.pdf) and Data Reports (.doc and .pdf) — These may be copied and printed

C Series Imager users can purchase a fNIRS Lesson License to use with their systems. Licenses are tied to a single fNIR Imager. In the future when new lessons are released, users may purchase the new lesson materials with a license upgrade.

! Customers who purchased the fNIR103E System do not need to add the fNIRS Lesson License as it is included.

fNIRS Lessons License F01-F04

This license includes the following fNIRS lesson experiments; see Curriculum > F01-F04 for more detail.

  • F01 The fNIRS System and Oxygenation Changes Measured on the Forearm: Exercise 1 Oxygenation Change Due to Blood Flow Occlusion; Exercise 2 Oxygenation Change with Gravity; Exercise 3 Muscle Oxygenation Change after Hand Grip Exercise
  • F02 The fNIRS System, Systemic Signals and Artifacts: Exercise 1 Head movement Effects; Exercise 2 Skin Effect; Exercise 3 Systemic Effects–Blood Pressure Changes
  • F03 fNIRS Measurements During Verbal Fluency Tasks: Exercise 1: Phonemics Verbal Fluency (PVF) Task; Exercise 2 Semantic Verbal Fluency (SVF) Task
  • 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
  • Sports medicine
  • Physical therapy
  • Speech pathology
  • Education
  • Biomedical engineering

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
