Sungho Tak released an fNIRS toolbox update for the NIR-SPM software. It is freely available for download.
The updated version of the toolbox  includes (i) motion artifact/physiological noise correction, (ii) multiple basis functions for modelling canonical hemoglobin responses, (iii) temporal correlation estimation (pre-whitening), and (iv) user interface enhancements over previous versions. Please see the manual for more details.  The toolbox has been updated in collaboration with Ippeita Dan(dan AT spatial registration, Felix Scholkmann(Felix.Scholkmann AT motion artifact correction, William Penny (w.penny AT mathematical framework.  If you have any specific queries, please contact an author of the toolbox.

The toolbox incorporates all of the lab’s newest innovations including statistical analysis methods for single subject and group level models, mixed effects and ANOVA models, image reconstruction, and functional connectivity analysis.



Homer2 Tutorial: Simple Probe

The MGH Optics Division has uploaded a new Homer2 tutorial. This includes a basic introduction to the screen layout, how to view data from different sources and detectors, how to execute a simple processing script to convert from intensity to optical density to concentration, how to bandpass filter the data, and how to block average the response to a stimulus. Watch the tutorial below, or find it on the Homer2 website.
