Call for Papers: Functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) is an increasingly popular brain imaging technique. Its many advantages, e.g. ease-of-use, relative motion tolerance, low cost, and portability, make it the imaging method of choice in a large number of situations where other techniques, e.g. EEG or fMRI are not suitable, such as in preterm newborns, stroke monitoring, behaving participants, or global health applications in remote locations outside the laboratory, for instance in rural Africa. In parallel, striking progress has been made in developing new fNIRS hardware, from wearable, miniature systems through real-time brain-computer interfaces to high-density optical tomography.

This special section aims to recognize the advances occurring in the fNIRS field. Manuscripts are solicited on topics related to functional near-infrared spectroscopy, including:

  • neurodevelopment
  • brain and systemic physiology
  • clinical applications
  • multimodal imaging: NIRS combined with other techniques
  • hardware development
  • global health applications
  • neonate and pediatric applications
  • data analysis
  • neurocognition.

This special section invites participants in the fNIRS 2016 conference (http://www.fnirs2016.org/) to submit a paper based on the work presented there. Manuscripts from authors not present at the fNIRS 2016 meeting are also welcome. Submissions should follow the guidelines of Neurophotonics, which can be found at http://spie.org/NPHauthorinfo. Manuscripts should be submitted online at http://neurophotonics.msubmit.net. All papers will undergo peer review.

Manuscripts due 1 April 2017.


BRAIN 2017

Special Issue from SPIE Brain 2017

Call for Papers: SPIE Brain 2017, part of SPIE Photonics West BiOS, highlights research that describes the development of innovative technologies that will increase our understanding of brain structure and function. This special issue of Neurophotonics is intended to complement SPIE Brain 2017 by providing a forum for peer-reviewed journal publication. Note that SPIE publication policy permits manuscripts based on content reported in SPIE proceedings to be submitted to SPIE journals (see full guidelines at http://spie.org/publications/journals/guidelines-for-authors#Conference_Proceedings_Papers).

Key topics that will be addressed include: imaging, sensing, optogenetics, and optical manipulation; and clinical and translational neurophotonics.

A cover letter indicating that the submission is intended for this special issue should be included with the paper.

Manuscripts due 30 March 2017.
