Design and Construction of Functional Near-infrared Spectroscopy (fNIRS) Imaging System in Ferdowsi University of Mashhad

A research team at Ferdowsi University of Mashhad (FUM), with the support of the Cognitive Sciences & Technologies Council, succeeded in designing and building an fNIRS imaging recording system to monitor brain hemodynamic activity.


Dr. Javad Safaei, a faculty member of FUM, announced: "In this research, we can design a very sensitive, accurate, and reliable system for light imaging of the brain using the fNIRS method based on similar development experiences in Europe."


He said that “Functional near-infrared spectroscopy imaging system is an optical imaging technology that can measure hemodynamic responses related to neural activity in the brain or muscle tissue."


According to him, this system can be used easily and simultaneously with other systems such as EEG, ECG, eye tracking system, respiration, blood pressure, and other activities to achieve a more comprehensive assessment of human brain activity.
