#36 - ILLUNO student, Shohei Hosokawa, wears a cap with specialized electrodes that emit infrared light into his skull and then other electrodes that 'read' the changes in the light due to the presence of oxygenated blood flowing near the surface of the skull. This allows researchers to measure blood flow to areas of the brain that are being activated by different motor tasks that they are asked to perform.
