Q&A with Lia Hocke, Yunjie Tong, and Blaise Frederick

Working out of the McLean Hospital, part of Harvard Medical School, they shared their perspective on the mutual information contained in peripheral NIRS (near infrared spectroscopy) and fMRI signals. They also used the word “photoplethysmograph” correctly in a sentence, and left us with a delightful shout-out to statistical rigor.
