|Outline of Final Research Achievements
he purpose of this research was to develop bio-feedback system for controlling one’s appetite using ultra-small near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) system. Individual analysis of functional MRI data during appetite control task showed activation of cortical network including the bilateral prefrontal cortex, where our target of the NIRS measurements. We, then, applied our bio-feedback system during appetite control tasks, however, we faced a few significant problems for the measured NIRS data. Therefore, extra-development for the system was needed, and, unfortunately, there was no remaining time left to study beneficial effects by our bio-feedback system.
