The SfNIRS Society and its members are heartbroken by the tragic loss of many lives as a result of the earthquakes that hit Turkey and Syria on Feb 6th, 2023. We express our solidarity and support with all those who were affected by this terrible tragedy. Anyone wishing to make donation to help the people affected please consider the following organizations.

The Society for functional near-infrared spectroscopy (SfNIRS) is a professional organization of basic and clinical scientists who seek to understand the functional properties of biological tissues, especially the brain, using optical methods. The aim of the Society is to promote the exchange of ideas, interdisciplinary collaboration, and education.

The purpose of this website is to help strengthen the community by providing information about instruments, probes, analysis software, related meetings, publications, and more.
