We develop a potential biomarker to subdivide the stress groups into eustress and distress groups using hemodynamic responses of functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS). We stimulate two stress groups divided by saliva alpha-amylase (sAA) with an international affective picture system (IAPS) inducing positive or negative emotions and measure hemodynamic responses at the same time. As a result, we have developed a newly designed biomarker using fNIRS.
