AbstractIn this study, a phase method for analyzing functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) signals was developed, which can extract the phase information of fNIRS data by using Hilbert transform. More importantly, the phase analysis method can be further performed to generate the brain phase activation and to construct the brain networks. Meanwhile, the study of translation between Chinese and English has been exciting and interesting from both the language and neuroscience standpoints due to their drastically different linguistic features. In particular, inspecting the brain phase activation and functional connectivity based on the phase data and phase analysis method will enable us to better understand the neural mechanism associated with Chinese/English translation. Our phase analysis results showed that the left prefrontal cortex, including the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) and frontopolar area, was involved in the translation process of the language pair. In addition, we also discovered that the most significant brain phase activation difference between translating into non-native (English) vs. native (Chinese) language was identified in the Broca's area. As a result, the proposed phase analysis approach can provide us an additional tool to reveal the complex cognitive mechanism associated with Chinese/English sight translation.
