Abstract. Functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS), acquired simultaneously with electroencephalography (EEG), allows the investigation of hemodynamic brain responses to epileptic activity. Because the presumed epileptogenic focus is patient-specific, an appropriate source/detector (SD) montage has to be reconfigured for each patient. The combination of EEG and fNIRS, however, entails several constraints on montages, and finding an optimal arrangement of optodes on the cap is an important… 
Hemodynamic Response to Interictal Epileptiform Discharges Addressed by Personalized EEG-fNIRS Recordings
ElectroEncephaloGraphy and functional Near InfraRed Spectroscopy recordings are used to study the hemodynamic response to Interictal Epileptic Discharges using patient-specific and prolonged simultaneous EEG-fNIRS recordings and cluster-permutation analysis unveils additional HR features underestimated when imposing a canonical HR function.
Enhanced spatiotemporal resolution imaging of neuronal activity using joint electroencephalography and diffuse optical tomography
It is demonstrated using simulations that two sources separated by 2.3-3.3 cm and 50 ms can be recovered accurately using the proposed algorithm by suitably combining EEG and DOT, but not by either in isolation.
Multichannel continuous electroencephalography-functional near-infrared spectroscopy recording of focal seizures and interictal epileptiform discharges in human epilepsy: a review
While investigating IEDs, it was shown that their hemodynamic effect is observable with fNIRS, that their response is associated with significant (inhibitive) nonlinearities, and that the sensitivity and specificity of fNIS to localize the epileptic focus can be estimated in a sample of 40 patients.
Diffuse optical reconstructions of functional near infrared spectroscopy data using maximum entropy on the mean
Functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) measures the hemoglobin concentration changes associated with neuronal activity. Diffuse optical tomography (DOT) consists of reconstructing the optical
Deconvolution of hemodynamic responses along the cortical surface using personalized functional near infrared spectroscopy
It is demonstrated that DOT followed by deconvolution was able to accurately recover a large variability of HRFs over a large range of SNRs and be able to reconstruct accurately the temporal dynamics ofHRFs in real conditions.
Diffuse optical reconstructions of NIRS data using Maximum Entropy on the Mean
A nonlinear source localization method developed and validated in the context of Electro- and Magneto-Encephalography: the Maximum Entropy on the Mean (MEM) is adapted to solve the inverse problem of DOT reconstruction and showed that overall MEM provided more accurate DOT reconstructions than MNE.
Transcranial brain atlas‐based optimization for functional near‐infrared spectroscopy optode arrangement: Theory, algorithm, and application
The theoretical basis of TBA‐based optimization of optode arrangement using a mathematical framework is described and an algorithm is proposed for automatically arranging optodes on a virtual scalp, which gives convergent support for the method's ability to provide more accurate, consistent and efficient optode arrangements for fNIRS group imaging than the 10/20 method.
Guiding functional near-infrared spectroscopy optode-layout design using individual (f)MRI data: Effects on signal quality and sensitivity
It is concluded that additional individual MRI data leads to a better outcome, but that not all the modalities tested here are required to achieve a robust setup.


The combination of EEG Source Imaging and EEG‐correlated functional MRI to map epileptic networks
A description of the neurophysiologic mechanisms that give rise to the measured signals is described, followed by validation studies based on comparison with intracranial EEG and surgical outcome, and analysis strategies to combine both techniques are discussed.

Brain Cortical Mapping by Simultaneous Recording of Functional Near Infrared Spectroscopy and Electroencephalograms from the Whole Brain During Right Median Nerve Stimulation
The present results suggest that simultaneous NIRS and EEG recording is useful for correlating hemodynamic responses to neural activity and suggests that GLM analysis with onset delay could reveal the temporal ordering of neural activation in the hierarchical somatosensory pathway, consistent with the neurophysiological data.
Combining EEG and fMRI: A multimodal tool for epilepsy research
The methodology involved in performing such studies, particularly the challenge of recording a good quality EEG inside the MR scanner while scanning is taking place, and the methods required for the statistical analysis of the combined EEG and fMRI time series are reviewed.

Compliant head probe for positioning electroencephalography electrodes and near-infrared spectroscopy optodes
Geometric measurements indicate that the probe will accommodate the full range of adult head sizes and the placement accuracy, precision, and uniformity of sensor contact pressure are important determinants of data quality in noninvasive brain monitoring with simultaneous NIRS-EEG.
