We used optical topography (OT) to investigate cognitive function in infants in rural Gambia. Images of changes in oxyhaemoglobin and deoxyhaemoglobin concentrations were reconstructed using a multispectral algorithm which uses the finite element method (FEM) to model the propagation of light through scattering tissue using the diffusion equation. High quality OT data enabled us to reconstruct images with robust representation of haemodynamic changes. OT is a feasible neuroimage technology for this resource-poor setting.
