This 2.5 day course is organised and run by Drs. Anna Blasi, Rob Cooper and Sarah Lloyd-Fox. The course will provide attendees with an introduction to all aspects of NIRS research, from theoretical considerations through experimental challenges to data analysis. The course is suitable for all researchers with an interest in NIRS applications in any population, but will be of particular benefit to those who are new to NIRS, and those whose research involves infants and children.
The course is structured as a series of lectures with examples to illustrate the topics discussed, combined with practical, hands-on sessions to give attendees the opportunity to practice what has been discussed in the lectures. The course will close with a guest lecture from Professor Clare Elwell, UCL.
