The DSI EEG + fNIR headset is a complete, research-grade, combined wireless EEG and fNIR system. It is designed for synchronized recording of the brain's electrical activity (EEG) as well as its haemodynamic response or blood-oxygen-level-dependent (BOLD) response. The system's sensors are arranged in a way which allows simultaneous and superimposed recording at locations distributed on the scalp.

The system comprises ultra-high impedance active Dry Sensor Interface (DSI) sensors and very powerful LED emitters and high sensitivity NIR detectors that function through hair, without skin preparation or gels. They are spring-loaded to provide constant, comfortable contact pressure that mitigates movement artifacts seen during ambulation and are actively and passively shielded to prevent contamination from real-world electrical artifacts.

This multi-modal EEG and fNIR device enable investigation of neurovascular coupling, the relationship between EEG and BOLD, localization of neuronal activity sources and more reliable brain activity monitoring.

Applications made possible with the DSI-EEG+fNIR include:

  • Neuroscience research 
  • Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCI)
  • Neurovascular Coupling
  • Neurofeedback
  • Neuromarketing
  • Biomarkers


System Features

  • Active dry electrode sensor with 2 stage amplification and digitization in headset delivers research-grade EEG signal
  • Triple frequency ultra-bright LED emitters and amplified detectors offer reliable through-hair fNIR
  • fNIR optodes arranged around EEG sensors for co-registered measurement of EEG and BOLD
  • Patented artifact resistant electro-mechanical designs enable ambulation in naturalistic environments
  • Short- and Long- light paths fNIR measurements empower integrated algorithms for regression of Mayer wave artifact
