Here they combine the THERA PRAX® neurofeedback system with near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS).

In the NIRS neurofeedback oxygenated hemoglobin in the prefrontal cortex is measured and fed back. The patient is required to increase or decrease hemodynamic activity in the investigated cortex. The researches hope that this method increases the attention.
