Thanks very much for your talk, I loved it.

My question relates to what you just presented about the approaches to reduce physiological interferences in infants fNIRS
Some preliminary investigation on infants have shown that the use of short separation channels in infants does not improve massively the SNR. As also Joy Hirsh group has also shown, deoxyhemoglobin seems to be a more robust indicator of brain activity but this is hardly used or reported in infants’ studies. Do you think that also within this field we should start using deoxyHB as well to improve the spatial sensitivity of fNIRS and to gain a better understanding of the neurovascular coupling in infants?
