Caption: Position of each of the light sources (red) and detectors (yellow) across both sessions, as well as three-dimensional reconstruction of the estimated light path of each optical channel between a source and detector, shown as green ellipsoids for each channel, both co-registered with the individual's structural magnetic resonance image (MRI) for a representative subject. Background is a long-exposure photograph of the near-infrared optic fibers carrying light from the imaging instrument.
