fNIRS Workshop

The BU Neurophotonics Center is organizing a 2 week virtual Zoom course on functional Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (fNIRS) on October 19-29, 2020 from 10 am to 12 pm ET (Boston time) every day. The course will include lectures, hands-on sessions analyzing fNIRS data, and a strong emphasis on data analysis exercises using the Homer3 software.

The fee for the 2 weeks virtual course is $300, and this includes 2 years of Homer premium access, for more information about Homer premium access please visit

If you have any questions, please contact Parya Farzam.

This year fNIRS course will be virtual through Zoom.


Homer3  – Free

Software suite for interactive analysis of functional near infrared spectroscopy measurements of brain activation. Homer3 and Atlas Viewer are free and open source. Enabling custom processing streams at run, subject, and group level analyses. OpenfNIRS offers training, and support.

 Premium Homer $150/y $50/y for a limited time!

Help support the on-going development of Homer3 and AtlasViewer by purchasing high resolution (1 mm) precomputed sensitivity data. This enables higher fidelity fluence simulation without the computational investment of running probe specific Monte Carlo simulations. You will also get access to online training exercises, videos of past workshops, and webinars, and preferred response to questions in the homer-fnirs google group.

brainScape – $1900

Software that offers real-time localization and registration of optical signals with the underlying cortical coordinates, guiding probe layout during the setup process as well as post-capture display of each probe’s sensitivity.


3D-printed fNIRS NinjaCap – $200

3D-printed head NinjaCaps for fNIRS provide durable and customizable head cap tailored to a specific probe configuration. The caps are printed with a flexible material that holds probes flush against the scalp.


3D Printed Head Model –  $350

The 3D-printed head model includes bumps indicating the standard 10-20 coordinates locations, and smaller spots indicating the 10-10 coordinate locations, helping facilitate probe development and placement. The head model can be scaled to match a desired head circumference


Fiber Optic Probes – $200

We provide an assortment of fiber optic probes for aiding near infrared spectroscopy and diffuse correlation spectroscopy measurements.

Probes include NIRS fibers for EasyCap, DCS probes and NIRS-DCS probes, as well as custom probe designs.

Diffuse Correlation Spectroscopy

We provide hardware for performing diffuse correlation spectroscopy measurements of blood flow. More details coming soon.
