Abstract
The assessment of cortical activation in the neonatal brain is crucial in the study of brain development, as it provides precious information for how the newborn infant processes external or internal stimuli. Thus far functional studies of neonates aimed to assess cortical responses to certain external stimuli are very few, due to the lack of suitable techniques to monitor brain activity of the newborn. Near Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS) has been found to be suitable for functional studies of the infant brain. By this method haemodynamic changes coupled to cortical activity can be monitored. The overall aim of the research is to assess how the brain is processing...
