This study assessed whether data collected while a participant was intentionally moving is of the same quality as data collected from a motionless participant via fNIRS (functional near-infrared spectroscopy). This study was a within-subjects design with 3 head-movement conditions (no head-movement, low head-movement, and high head-movement). Data was recorded via the fNIRS system as well as an app called VibSensor, which recorded head movement on the X, Y, and Z planes. Results for the behavioral data indicated significance only on the Y plane across the no and high movement conditions and one significant channel for the fNIRS data.
