Description: This article accompanies a poster presentation on the decoding of movement direction using optical imaging of motor cortex. The authors' study provides a computational scheme to decode intentional arm movement direction using optical imaging of the motor cortex for future implementation on a neuroprosthetic device that enables physically disabled patients to navigate a wheelchair using brain-derived signals. To this end, we developed a signal-processing algorithm for detecting movement direction from hemodynamic signals using functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) recorded in human subjects during execution of a directional motor task.
