The application of functional near-infrared spectroscopy in social cognitive neuroscience

Social cognitive neuroscience is an interdisciplinary field that explores the theory and practice of social science with cognitive neuroscience research methods. Recently, functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) has become a hot technique used in social cognitive neuroscience for its advantage of high ecological validity, image security, high reliability and low cost. Currently, fNIRS is widely used in single brain research studying the neural mechanism of infant development, social economic decision- making and interpersonal interaction. In the future, it could be a very useful imaging tool in multi-brain research including neurofeedback, brain-computer interface, wireless equipment and multi-modality imaging.

Key words:functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS),social cognitive neuroscience,hyperscanning,multi-brain research
