Abstract

The neuroscientific study of visually guided actions has been hampered by the reliance on techniques, primarily functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), that constrain bodily movements. Therefore, we examined the feasibility of using functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) to study hand actions using a modified paradigm previously employed with fMRI (Cavina-Pratesi et al., 2018, Cortex).
