Montreal SfNIRS conference shines light on the brain
Author(s): Frédéric Lesage; Hellmuth Obrig

Paper Abstract

Noninvasive imaging of brain function has become an indispensable pillar of neuroscience and clinically motivated research on brain disease. Despite the undisputed strength ofMRI-basedtechniques,lessdemandingandbroadlyaffordable methods may be necessary to complement and expand the scope of neuroimaging from a bulky scanner to the bedside or into ecologically meaningful environments. Nearinfrared spectroscopy has clearly developed into one of the most exciting options increasingly used by cognitive and developmental researchers, neonatologists, anesthesiologists, neurologists, and psychiatrists. In concert with electrophysiological and other vascular-based imaging techniques, NIRS may well serve to link basic research to clinical challenges
