Functional near infrared spectroscopy and electroencephalography are non-invasive techniques that rely on sensors placed over the scalp. The spatial localization of the measured brain activity requires the precise individuation of sensor positions and, when individual anatomical information is not available, the accurate registration of these sensor positions to a head atlas. Both these issues could be successfully addressed using a photogrammetry-based method. In this study we demonstrate that sensor positions can be accurately detected from a video recorded with a smartphone, with a median localization error of 0.7 mm, comparable if not lower, to that of conventional approaches. Furthermore, we demonstrate that the additional information of the shape of the participant's head can be further exploited to improve the registration of the sensor's positions to a head atlas, reducing the median sensor localization error of 31% compared to the standard registration approach.

Abstract

Functional near infrared spectroscopy and electroencephalography are non-invasive techniques that rely on sensors placed over the scalp. The spatial localization of the measured brain activity requires the precise individuation of sensor positions and, when individual anatomical information is not available, the accurate registration of these sensor positions to a head atlas. Both these issues could be successfully addressed using a photogrammetry-based method. In this study we demonstrate that sensor positions can be accurately detected from a video recorded with a smartphone, with a median localization error of 0.7 mm, comparable if not lower, to that of conventional approaches. Furthermore, we demonstrate that the additional information of the shape of the participant's head can be further exploited to improve the registration of the sensor's positions to a head atlas, reducing the median sensor localization error of 31% compared to the standard registration approach.
