This is an executive summary of some of the activity that has occurred in the past few months collected from posts you made to our Facebook group and Twitter.
Please note that not every post or news is repeated here, but only those that we felt might be of greater relevance for the society members. This necessarily involves some discretionary choices, and hence it is prone to bias. We can only make our best effort to aim for fairness.
Nevertheless, if you know of any other relevant activity that you think should be included here, please contact us with your comments so that we can be more comprehensive. Our order of presentation follows no particular order. For future newsletter issues, we encourage you to announce events in our Facebook group or in Twitter using the hashtag #fNIRS
fNIRS Newsletter server has changed
By David Boas
We moved our fNIRS newsletter server to a more professional server, but this requires you to re-register your email for the fNIRS newsletter. The Society for Functional Near Infrared Spectroscopy generally sends no more than one email per month, except in the month or two leading up to our conference that happens once every two years. Our newsletter contains lots of useful information about fNIRS activities and we hope that you will sign up to continue to receive the newsletter.
Please go to the link below to register for the newsletter. You will be able to unregister at any time. You can always find the registration information on our website at http://fnirs.org , as well as the link to unregister.
