Changes in optical properties of biological tissue can be examined by near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS). The relative transparency of tissues including the skull to near-infrared light is the prerequisite to apply the method to brain research. We describe the methodology with respect to its applicability in non-invasive functional research of the adult cortex. A summary of studies establishing the 'typical' response in NIRS vascular parameters, i.e. changes in the concentration of oxygenated… CONTINUE READING
