Abstract: The concentrations of oxyhemoglobin [HbO] and deoxyhemoglobin [Hb] in tissue and their temporal dynamics are an important indicator of cognitive function in the brain. Near-infrared (NIR) techniques have been employed to extract the concentration levels of these tissue chromophores due to their non-invasive feature. An integral part of this extraction procedure is a model of light propag... read more
