Using fNIRS to study working memory of infants in rural Africa
Lloyd Fox, Sarah and Begus, Katarina and Halliday, D. and Papademetriou, M. and Darboe, M.K. and Prentice, A.M. and Moore, S.E. and Elwell, Clare (2016) Using fNIRS to study working memory of infants in rural Africa. Advances In Experimental Medicine & Biology 876 , pp. 273-279. ISSN 0065-2598.
A pilot study was conducted to assess the feasibility of using fNIRS as an alternative to behavioral assessments of cognitive development with infants in rural Africa. We report preliminary results of a study looking at working memory in 12–16-month-olds and discuss the benefits and shortcomings for the potential future use of fNIRS to investigate the effects of nutritional insults and interventions in global health studies.
