Inside a Quantitative Analysis of in Vivo Near Infrared Monitoring
Measuring human brain function is one of the most formidable scientific/engineering endeavours. Recently spectacular methods such as CT, NMR and PET have eclipsed the importance of relatively simple continuous non-invasive techniques based on the analysis of electromagnetic signals and/or optical features of brain tissue.
