We propose a method to isolate cerebral NIRS signatures from superficial fluctuations using measurements at two source-detector separations. Two-layer Monte-Carlo simulations were used as a model, varying the absorption of each layer. Initial results show processed signals strongly resemble the simulated bottom layer absorption properties.
