Research Interests

Functional near infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) is a very versatile imaging tool whose popularity is increasing exponentially in the neuroimaging society. My research focusses on the characterization of neural correlates underlying cognition and motor control. My current study involves continuous monitoring of the brain activity using NIRS when the subject performs a complex cognitive task like driving and assessing different driver cognitive states like situational awareness, vigilance, working memory load, error-detection, emotional and attentional arousal etc.
