  • We show the potential of functional near-infrared spectroscopy for the discrimination of mental workloads during a cognitive task with two different levels of difficulty. Standard data analysis based on filtering and folding average procedures were carried out to locate those source-detector pairs sensitive to the activated cortical regions. On these channels we applied two classification algorith... read more
