Meet our new Junior Scientist, Maia! She and her brother are our university's first fNIRS participants.
fNIRS is a completely harmless technique that uses near infrared light. From measuring how the light is absorbed and scattered while the Junior Scientists are doing tasks, we can work out what the brain is doing during those tasks.
Many thanks to Maia and her family for helping us with our research. We hope to see them again in the future!
We're looking for more Junior Scientists between 5 and 12 years of age. If you are a parent and have any Junior Scientists who would like to take part in our study, then please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
