Cortical Activation During Shoulder and Finger Movements

Link – Cortical Activation During Shoulder and Finger Movements in Healthy Adults: A Functional Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (fNIRS) Study. Abstract Characterization of cortical activation patterns during movement of the upper extremity in healthy adults is helpful in understanding recovery mechanisms following neurological disorders. This study explores cortical activation patterns associated with movements of the shoulder and […]

fNIRS Indicates Hemispheric Activation With Task Difficulty.

Link – Functional Near-Infrared Spectroscopy Indicates That Asymmetric Right Hemispheric Activation in Mental Rotation of a Jigsaw Puzzle Decreases With Task Difficulty. Abstract Mental rotation (MR) is a cognitive skill whose neural dynamics are still a matter of debate as previous neuroimaging studies have produced controversial results. In order to investigate the underlying neurophysiology of […]

Reconstructing activation levels of brain function.

Link – A Kalman-based tomographic scheme for directly reconstructing activation levels of brain function. Opt Express. 2019 Feb 04;27(3):3229-3246 Authors: Wang B, Pan T, Zhang Y, Liu D, Jiang J, Zhao H, Gao F Abstract In functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS), the conventional indirect approaches first separately recover the spatial distribution of the changes in the […]
