Abstract

Near-infrared spectroscopy (NIR) can give continuous, direct information about cerebral oxygen metabolism not only in infants but also in adults by providing signals from oxyhemoglobin (oxy-Hb), deoxyhemoglobin (deoxy-Hb), and the redox state of cytochrome aa3 (Cyt). Using NIR, we examined the cerebral oxygen metabolism of normal adults and patients with moyamoya disease.
