A method for estimating brain regions contributing to sustained attention from fNIRS signals

Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) This study aims to develop a neurorehabilitation method for attention function. We proposed estimating the responsible area that contributed to the attention function based on the fNIRS measurement and examined whether the attention function can be monitored. We conducted an attention-controlled experiment with two experimental tasks: an attention maintenance task to induce top-down attention activation and an attention interruption task to induce bottom-up attention activation. fNIRS signals during the tasks were analyzed. The results showed that the superior frontal gyrus responded explicitly to the attention maintenance task and the angular gyrus responded specifically to the attention interruption task, consistent with the fMRI findings. These findings indicate the possibility of applying fNIRS to the monitoring technique of attention function.
