NIRS analyses with HOMER2 and MATLAB – Near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) is a spectroscopic method that uses the near-infrared region of the electromagnetic spectrum (from about 700 nm to 2500 nm). HOMER2 is a set of MATLAB scripts used for analyzing fNIRS data to obtain estimates and maps of brain activation. The project analyzed brain area activation as two participants either cooperated or competed.
