fNIRS brings connectivity studies to a new level. The hyperscanning modality enables both online feedback as well as offline analysis regarding within- and between-subjects connectivity. In addition to that, fNIRS fast sampling rate for hemodynamic states allows for a quick update rate of connectivity feedback, resulting into enhanced subject engagement.
NIRx Webinar Studying functional connectivity with fNIRS
*A recording of the April 3 2019 Webinar, in which Jessica reviews concepts of functional connectivity analysis in fNIRS, and gives a simple demonstration of how to perform a simple connectivity analysis in FC-NIRS and the Brain AnalyzIR Toolbox.
