Abstract: This thesis aimed to investigate the ability to adjust cognitive processes and behavior, i.e., cognitive control, and its related functional activity in the cortex. The optical imaging technique functional near-infrared spec- troscopy (fNIRS) was used to detect change in cortical activity during neu- ropsychological tests of conflict processing and proactive cognitive control The two first studies used a test-retest design and investigated how pro- longed mental activity, neuropsychological tes... more
