Measurement Channel

Definition: A channel in fNIRS is typically the combination of a source and a detector that together produce a single stream of measurement data from a circumscribed portion of underlying brain (or other) tissue. A channel’s position is marked mid-way between its source and detector pair in a 3D space, which also indicates the surface projection of the underlying brain area where emitted photons have the highest probability of interacting with brain tissue.
