New UBSN Equipment - NIRSport 2

Dear Staff and Students,



We are excited to announce a newly acquired equipment here at UBSN -NIRSport 2, now located in ZB217.

The NIRSport 2, a functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) platform, is used to measure cerebral hemodynamics using a non-invasive method. This detection is determined by two types of near-infrared wavelength spectroscopy (NIRS). By reflecting near-infrared light off the cerebral tissue, information on tissue oxygenation and metabolism can be obtained. The NIRSport 2 is lightweight and hence suitable for application in motion-based studies. It has been used in various research domains involving healthy populations and patients with neurological and psychiatric disorders.

For enquiries, please contact our officer-in-charge: Dr. Tommy LAM (
