Take a chance to win a Brite for your study period! Send us your research proposal in which you can use a Brite. The proposal should be maximum 2 pages, including;
Why this research needs to be done and why you should win the contest
Short description of the protocol
Who will be involved in this study (including affiliations)
When you would need the Brite and for how long
Any other requirements for successful study
Contact email@example.com for any questions and proposal submissions before December 1st, 2018. The best proposal will win our newest NIRS system for the entire duration of your data collection.
Thanks to the very generous gifts of local companies and private individuals during the ‘Lichtjesactie’ (translates as ‘Candles project’) that was organized during Christmas time last year by the Stichting Vrienden van Sophia, the Sophia Childrens hospital were able to buy a camper van, which has been remodeled and transformed into a mobile research lab under close guidance of dr. Sabine Mous.
We offer the full spectrum of NIRS devices, and all our devices can be mixed and matched to create your optimal setup within the same software. To aid you in finding the right device for your research we have drafted this comparative table below with the most important specifications for each device.
Watch how comfortable the Brite is, even for babies! #fNIRS
You can win a Brite system for your research project! What do you need to do? We ask you to write a short proposal, 2 pages maximum, of your research project. The most outstanding proposal will win Artinis Brite for the entire duration of your data collection period.
As an application Specialist at Artinis Medical Systems I get asked a lot what the differences are between lasers and LEDs. So, therefore a small blog to answer this question once and for all. Both laser and LED have their specific pros and cons. It depends very much on your research requirements what technique is best for you. I have broken down the differences in measuring depth, portability, pricing, wavelengths and safety in this blog.
Watch how easy setting up your Brite is!
The Brite is the only wearable fNIRS device worldwide that can measure the oxy-, deoxy- and total hemoglobin in every part of the head, e.g. prefrontal cortex, motor cortex, or visual cortex.
The artificial induction of ischemia (from Greek, meaning stopping/keeping back blood) was first shown to help protect cardiac muscle from injury in later occurring episodes of ischemia by Charles Murry and colleagues in 1986. This technique came to be called ischemic preconditioning (IPC).
EEG and fNIRS are complementary measuring techniques. EEG measures electrophysiological brain activation, that is the electromagnetic field created when neurons in the brain are firing. fNIRS measures the hemodynamic response, that is the change of oxygen in the blood when a brain region becomes active. By combining EEG and fNIRS, a more complete picture of brain activity is obtained: activation of neurons and energy demand of neurons.
Over the years we have developed both hardware-based and software-based options for data synchronization. In this blog we will explore the different options and discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each.
A common question we get from our customers is what is a baseline and how to use it. Generally with fNIRS, the absolute values are arbitrary. The period before a stimulus is often referred to as the baseline. In this blog we will describe the do's and don'ts of baselines.
