Introduction to fNIRS measurement and analysis – Abel Smith Theatre


In this workshop we will conduct a simple experiment and discuss practical considerations around fNIRS data collection and experimental design. After discussing the various software packages for analysis we will then analyse the dataset as a group. This will include loading the data, discussing visualisation and data quality metrics, stepping through the required preprocessing steps, and finally performing a waveform and GLM analysis.


Dr. Robert Luke, Macquarie University

He has experience with various neuroimaging techniques and is the author of several open-source software packages and data standards, including MNE-NIRS and BIDS-NIRS.
