Optical monitoring of cerebral metabolism

With Dr Gemma Bale, Department of Engineering, University of Cambridge

Optical monitoring of cerebral metabolism: from newborn brain injury to dementia

I develop wearable, non-invasive optical brain monitoring tools based on near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) to measure brain oxygenation and metabolism in places where conventional brain imaging isn’t possible. In this talk, I will present some of the applications of this technique, focussing on neonatal bran injury and dementia diagnosis, covering the engineering challenges and future directions of wearable brain imaging in naturalistic environments.

The seminar will be held in a hybrid format. We strongly encourage you to participate in person at MR 12 , Centre of Mathematical Sciences, CB3 0WA . Althernatively you can join using the following Zoom link:
