Multimodal functional brain sensor
Multimodal Functional Brain Sensor is an innovative way to monitor the brain neuronal and hemodynamic activities during stereo-EEG recording.
We have developed a novel anchor bolt for stereo-EEG, which includes in its walls the optodes of functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS). This enables simultaneous recording of stereo-EEG (neuronal activity) and fNIRS hemodynamic activity bypassing the extracranial hemodynamic signals.
