Objective This study aimed to reveal the physiological mechanism in subjects with mild cognitive impairment based on effective connectivity method. Methods Effective connectivity was assessed by dynamic Bayesian inference of the oxygenated hemoglobin concentration signals measured through functional near-infrared spectroscopy. The oxygenated hemoglobin concentration signals were recorded from the left prefrontal cortex, right prefrontal cortex, left motor cortex, right motor cortex, left… 
Functional Network Alterations in Patients With Amnestic Mild Cognitive Impairment Characterized Using Functional Near-Infrared Spectroscopy
TLDR
The findings validate the feasibility of utilizing fNIRS as a portable and reliable tool for the investigation of abnormal network alterations in patients with cognition decline and suggest that brain networks in aMCI patients were characterized with higher integration as well as higher segregation compared to healthy controls.
A Systematic Review of Cerebral Functional Near-Infrared Spectroscopy in Chronic Neurological Diseases—Actual Applications and Future Perspectives
Background: The management of people affected by age-related neurological disorders requires the adoption of targeted and cost-effective interventions to cope with chronicity. Therapy adaptation and
Quantitative Assessment of Resting-State for Mild Cognitive Impairment Detection: A Functional Near-Infrared Spectroscopy and Deep Learning Approach.
TLDR
The results indicate that a 30 s measurement of the resting-state with fNIRS could be used to detect MCI and the combination of neuroimaging and deep learning methods can be considered as novel biomarkers for clinical computer-assisted MCI diagnosis.
Effects of three different rehabilitation games' interaction on brain activation using functional near-infrared spectroscopy.
TLDR
The results show that the brain regions responded more strongly when activated by the physical and motion-sensing states compared with the button-push training state, and the physicaland motion-Sensing states are more conducive to the rehabilitation of the nervous system.
The Effects of Two Game Interaction Modes on Cortical Activation in Subjects of Different Ages: A Functional Near-Infrared Spectroscopy Study
TLDR
It is confirmed that elderly people have reduced cognitive function compared to young people, and mobile phone games have a positive training effect on reducing cognitive decline, and that VR is a suitable means for cognitive function training among the elderly.
Decreased low-frequency brain effective connectivity in seafarers during voyages: a functional near-infrared spectroscopy study.
TLDR
Investigation of the low-frequency brain effective connectivity in seafarers during voyages by using the coupling strength of functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) imaging revealed that the Patient Health Questionnaire-9 scores were positively correlated with the Systolic blood pressure values, delta HbO2 values and EC levels, respectively.

Alteration in Brain Functional and Effective Connectivity in Subjects With Hypertension
TLDR
Low WPCO and CS indicated a reduced network interaction, suggesting disturbed neurovascular coupling in subjects with hypertension, which may provide evidence of impaired cognitive function in hypertension and can enhance the understanding on neurov vascular coupling.
Altered Effective Connectivity of the Default Mode Network in Resting-State Amnestic Type Mild Cognitive Impairment
TLDR
Dysfunctional connectivity of the DMN was examined by combining an independent component analysis (ICA) approach with multivariate Granger causality analysis (mGCA) in 18 aMCI patients and 18 age-matched cognitively normal elderly and enhanced effective connectivity within frontal cortex emerged, which may maintain memory functions after attenuated connections within DMN activity.

TLDR
Examining differences in spatiotemporal gait parameters between older adults with amnestic mild cognitive impairment and normal cognition and to examine limbic and basal ganglia neural correlates of gait and executive function in older adults without dementia found lower executive function.
Extrastriate body area in human occipital cortex responds to the performance of motor actions
TLDR
Functional magnetic resonance imaging evidence that the EBA is strongly modulated by limb (arm, foot) movements to a visual target stimulus, even in the absence of visual feedback from the movement is reported.
Functional connectivity in the motor cortex of resting human brain using echo‐planar mri
TLDR
It is concluded that correlation of low frequency fluctuations, which may arise from fluctuations in blood oxygenation or flow, is a manifestation of functional connectivity of the brain.
Heterogeneity in Executive Impairment in Patients with Very Mild Alzheimer’s Disease
TLDR
Executive impairments are common in early AD and not just a feature characteristic of a subgroup of patients, and complex attentional skills are more frequently affected than other executive functions.
An integrative theory of prefrontal cortex function.
TLDR
It is proposed that cognitive control stems from the active maintenance of patterns of activity in the prefrontal cortex that represent goals and the means to achieve them, which provide bias signals to other brain structures whose net effect is to guide the flow of activity along neural pathways that establish the proper mappings between inputs, internal states, and outputs needed to perform a given task.
Wavelet coherence analysis of cerebral oxygenation signals measured by near-infrared spectroscopy in sailors: an exploratory, experimental study
TLDR
The negative correlation between WA and FSS indicates that the lower oscillatory activities might contribute to the development of fatigue and the low WPCO in intervals III, IV and V represents a reduced phase synchronisation of myogenic, neurogenic and endothelial metabolic activities respectively and this may suggest a decline of cognitive function.
