Starstim fNIRS kit

Starstim fNIRS 

Starstim/NIRS is the most modern wireless solution for brain stimulation and imaging.

  • Combine transcranial current stimulation (tCS: tDCS, tACS, tRNS) and electroencephalography (EEG) with functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) in one single headset. 


Combine fNIRS, tCS and EEG



The Starstim fNIRS package includes Neuroelectrics® StarStim (tCS and EEG) and Artinis OctaMon, both non-invasive and wearable technologies.
It allows clinicians and researchers to measure resting-state and task-related prefrontal cortical activity (EEG) and/or hemodynamics (fNIRS) before, during and after transcranial electrical stimulation in real world settings. In addition to the equipment provided, the Starstim NIRS package includes online assistance by Silverline Research Services (SRS) on how to integrate these two state-of-the-art devices or to tailor the Starstim with another neuroimaging device specifically according to your research or clinical needs. SRS expertise can also provide specialised online or on-site training (1-5 days) to integrate tCS with neuroimaging (EEG and fNIRS) through every step as well as other neurophysiological techniques (TMS, fMRI) and applications (cognition, motor control, sports and virtual reality).
