Abstract
Multi-directional measurement using multi-directional light sources and multi-directional photodetectors drastically increases the amount of observation data without increasing the number of optical probes. In this study, we developed a novel multi-directional functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) system for human neuroimaging studies. We tested our system by measuring the cortical hemodynamic changes of a single subject during a motor task and compared them with the same subject’s functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) data. We detected the direction-dependent fNIRS signals that originate from the cortical hemodynamic changes that are consistent with the fMRI data.
