For over 20 years, functional Near Infrared Spectroscopy (fNIRS) has helped shape research in neurocognitve development. Furthermore, it has provided means to explore markers of compromised development. It is now being applied to investigate socio-economic and environmental links in this process. The Brain Imaging for Global Health (BRIGHT) project is a longitudinal study that aims to provide brain function for age curves in high- and low-resource settings, with 62 enrolled families in the UK, and 223 in The Gambia. Behavioural, nutritional and growth information collected in the project may help explain differential responses within and between the groups.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for most presentations.
