Firstly, it will include an overview of the NIRS technique, with particular focus on the application of this technique for infancy research (to include practical demonstrations). Secondly, there will be a series of lectures on data analysis techniques given by invited speakers. The latter will include topics such as GLM modeling, image reconstruction, artifact detection, and probe localization and anatomy. Registration is now open and filling up fast. There is limited space. See here for details.
