NIRS fNIRS for neuroscientific research

NIRS fNIRS for neuroscientific research

The NIRSport2 system is our most technologically advanced fNIRS platform with a range of features and functions unparalleled within the market. With the highest-class of components as our starting point we’ve engineered a system boasting impressive signal quality, extensive versatility, modularity, along with the foresight into future research needs to ensure the most optimal user experience and highest success in science possible.

NIRS fNIRS processing and analysis software

NIRS fNIRS processing and analysis software

As one of our aims is to make fNIRS data analysis accessible, we decided to create a free educational version of Satori.  Satori EDU has all the standard software features and has predefined datasets so this version can be used for educational purposes. This software version helps people learn fNIRS data analysis one step at a time. It comes with a Getting Started Guide that shows how to load and visualize your data, inspect the quality, preprocess, run statistical tests on the data, then extract your results.

NIRS fNIRS BCI Neurofeedback Turbo Satori

NIRS fNIRS BCI Neurofeedback Turbo Satori

Turbo-Satori is a user-friendly, real-time analysis software for functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) data. It is developed by Brain Innovation, exclusively for NIRx fNIRS instruments. Turbo-Satori is compatible with the NIRSport, NIRSport 2 and NIRScout device, and can be used in both lab-based as well as open environments (mobile studies). It integrates with NIRStar or Aurora fNIRS without the need for any additional hardware.

NIRS fNIRS Aurora NIRSport 2 Acquisition Software

NIRS fNIRS Aurora NIRSport 2 Acquisition Software

Aurora fNIRS ensures optimal signal quality before a measurement is started. Raw data, HbO and Hb concentration changes can be visualized in real-time in several display modes. In addition, high-end whole-head visualizations are immediately available. Recorded data can be exported over the integrated Lab Streaming Layer (LSL) protocol, allowing for real-time processing in Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) and Neurofeedback paradigms. 
Aurora fNIRS: revolutionary fNIRS acquisition software by NIRx, available for the NIRSport 2.



NIRx offers complete flexibility for montage definition.  One may place probes on the 'standard' (e.g, 10-20, 10-10, 10-5) layout or in arbitrary positions; one may use short-distance measurements (tomography) or fixed-distance measurements (topography); one may have integrated EEG or other modalities.

Old Workshop:

O objetivo deste curso interativo híbrido é apresentar a fNIRS (espectroscopia funcional no infravermelho próximo): uma técnica de pesquisa em neuroimagem que mede a variação de concentração de oxigênio no cérebro, mas sem impor as restrições de uma ressonância magnética, podendo inclusive ser utilizada em ambientes externos.

Serão abordados os princípios da técnica e aplicações já publicadas.
Haverá uma sessão de discussão sobre possíveis desenhos experimentais, com interação informal entre os participantes e os palestrantes.
