  • Functional near-infrared imaging (fNIR) is a non-invasive, convenient, safe and stable imaging method to test biological state. It can obtain the biological tissue hemodynamic data, thus becoming a powerful tool to measure brain activities, mental workload, metabolism and cognitive activities state. First of all, we introduced the characteristics and current situation of fNIR in this article. Then we focused on the applications of fNIR, discussed some existing problems and future directions, including the prospect in aerospace field. Our purpose is to give a comprehensive description of fNIR and show its potential in aerospace field.
