Optical imaging for hearing research: possibilities and possible pitfalls

 Dr. Hamish Innes-Brown

Bionics Institute, Melbourne, Australia


Functional near-infrared spectroscopy is a brain imaging technique that holds great promise for hearing research. It measures regionally-specific changes in the concentrations of oxygenated and deoxygenated haemoglobin in the superficial layers of cortex that are due to neural activity. Importantly for hearing research, it is non-invasive, silent, can be used in a variety of seating positions, and can be used with implanted devices such as cochlear implants. In this talk I will describe our first few years using this technology, some of the problems we have come across, and the potential we see for future uses.
