A team led by UCL researchers has demonstrated a new form of wearable, baby-friendly brain mapping technology that has important implications for understanding developmental conditions such as autism spectrum disorder and cerebral palsy.

The technology uses harmless levels of red and near-infrared light delivered via a wearable cap to generate detailed 3D images of babies' brain activity. It means doctors and neuroscientists can image a baby's brain without needing MRI, which is expensive and difficult to apply while babies are awake.
