Abstract

We have non-invasively studied the motor cortex hemodynamics in human subjects under rest and motor stimulation conditions using a multichannel near-infrared tissue spectrometer. We obtained optical maps of oxy- and deoxy-hemoglobin concentration changes in terms of amplitudes of folding average, power spectrum and coherence at the stimulation repetition frequency, and the phase synchronization index. Under periodic motor stimulation conditions, we observed coherence and phase synchronization of the local hemodynamic changes with stimulation.
