Cognition is cool: Can hemispheric activation be assessed by tympanic membrane thermometry?

Cherbuin, Nicolas; Brinkman, Cobie


Hemispheric activation during cognitive tasks using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) can be difficult to interpret, uncomfortable, and is not widely available. This study investigated whether tympanic membrane thermometry could be used as a broad measure of hemispheric activation. Infrared probes measured ear temperature continuously while subjects performed left or right hemisphere tasks. Temperature decreased in the left ear as activation increased in the left hemisphere during a...[Show more]
