Toward Next-Generation Optical Brain-Function Imaging
Just how the human brain functions remains one of the greatest unsolved puzzles. To solve this mystery, brain-function imaging for visualization of brain functions has developed rapidly in recent years. In particular, in vivo optical imaging by functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) has attracted attention as a technique that supports next-generation brain science. Utilizing its leading-edge science and technology, Shimadzu has developed the LABNIRS, thereby contributing to the still growing field of brain science.

Expanding Range of Research Applications
Next-generation optical brain-function measurements start withmulti-channel and high density
Accepts up to 40 sets––2.5 times more than before (142 channels max.).
Spatial resolution doubled for high-density measurements.
Captures rapid cerebral blood flow signals in just 6 ms (previously 25 ms).
Reliability of 3 wavelengths and photomultiplier tube achieve superb sensitivity
Three semiconductor laser wavelengths capture more accurate data.
A photomultiplier tube captures the weakest cerebral signals.
Graphical User Interface
The intuitive user interface permits complex measurements and analysis conditions settings with simple button clicks.
【1】 Simple design of fiber placements
【2】 The set fiber placements are reflected on the trend graph and map during measurements.
|【1】||Comprehensive data processing functions|
Features a variety of analysis and processing tools, including independent component analysis (ICA*3), frequency filters, task addition, channel addition, centroid and integral analysis.
|【2】||Statistical analysis functions|
General linear model (GLM) statistical processing offers simple statistical analysis and evaluations at the point of measurement.
Combining short-distance measurements reduces the effects of scalp blood flow and other extra signals.
|【4】||Batch processing functions|
Permits batch processing with predetermined analysis procedures.
|【5】||Data output functions|
Permits output as text files (compatible with NIRS-SPM).
FOIRE Series data can be loaded to make use of past data.
