2014 Frontiers in Human Neuroscience  
Activation was found to scale linearly with working memory load in bilateral prefrontal cortex.  ...  While fNIRS has gained interest as a potential alternative to fMRI for use with clinical and pediatric populations, it remains unclear whether fNIRS has the necessary sensitivity to serve as a replacement  ...  To that end, it is important that fNIRS be validated against cognitive phenomena with known neural bases.  ...
