Abstract. A recent workshop brought together a mix of researchers
with expertise in optical physics, cerebral hemodynamics, cognitive
neuroscience, and developmental psychology to review the potential
utility of near-IR spectroscopy (NIRS) for studies of brain activity un-
derlying cognitive processing in human infants. We summarize the
key findings that emerged from this workshop and outline the pros
and cons of NIRS for studying the brain correlates of perceptual, cog-
nitive, and language development in human infants. 2005 Society of
