Publications Highlights – March 2020 to June 2020

By Felipe Orihuela-Espina

These highlights correspond to the publications list accompanying the newsletter issue of July 2020. It contains entries in the period from the beginning of March 2020 until end of June 2020. If you know of any other publication that you think it should be announced here, or you want an amendment to be made, please do contact us with the event information so that we can be more comprehensive. We encourage you to announce your publications in our Facebook group or in Tweeter using the hashtag #fNIRS. Entries have been organized in four sections according to the different methodologies to collect them. Some efforts are made to eliminate duplicates.

fNIRS papers posted on Facebook and Twitter

Methodology. This section was constructed from your posts made to the social networks in the period from March 1, 2020 to June 30, 2020, and specifically in our Facebook group as well as those in Twitter (with hashtag #fNIRS). As this is a manual task, errors may have occurred. Although we have done every effort to include all of the publications announced there, we apologize in advance if we have missed any of your postings. Please do let us know of those publications advertised in the social networks under the search criteria that we may have missed so that we can include it asap. In brackets, the date of posting and the person who made the post. When a publication is mentioned more than once, we only include the first post. We tried to avoid duplicating publications announced in previous issues.
