Welcome to the June 2018 issue of the SfNIRS newsletter.
The fNIRS 2018 meeting will be held in Tokyo, Japan on October 5-8, 2018.
We received 300 abstract submissions.Nearly 450 participants are expected to travel to Tokyo for this event. This is the biggest meeting for the society thus far. We also plan to have three early morning sessions that will involve discussion of specific issues for fNIRS research.

The recent special issue on “Algorithms for Functional Near-Infrared Spectroscopy, Cerebral Oximetry and Near-Infrared Imaging” in the journal Algorithms was announced. It covers new developments regarding algorithms, methods and ideas related to signal processing and data analysis for fNIRS, cerebral oximetry and NIRI measurements.

Last April, the Biomedical Optics Lab (LOB) at the University of Campinas (Prof. R. Mesquita, PI) held the second version of its 2-day fNIRS training course. The course was a success, attended by more than 20 researchers who were highly enthusiastic about learning material ranging from the basics to state-of-the-art issues in fNIRS.

What is “hyperscanning”?
Recent advances in non-invasive brain activity measurement techniques have inspired social neuroscientists to simultaneously record data from two or more brains and investigate interpersonal (across-brains) neural correlates in various social situations. Such attempts began more than 50 years ago with electroencephalography (EEG) (Duane and Behrendt, 1965), and scanning two people at once was later termed a “hyperscan” in the work of Montague et al. (2002). Montague and colleagues connected two functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) scanners together, and hemodynamic data from two participants were measured while they played a deception game.
