The change in oxy- and deoxy haemoglobin in the cortical tissue caused by brain function can be measured from multispectral images of exposed cortex. We cannot ignore the wavelength dependence of mean optical path length of detected light to calculate the accurate changes in concentrations of oxy- and deoxy- haemoglobin in the cortical tissue. The optical path length factor, which reflects the wavelength dependence of mean optical path length, is experimentally estimated from the multi-spectral images of exposed cortex of guinea pigs. The optical path length factor improves the accuracy in changes in concentrations of oxy- and deoxy-haemoglobin obtained from the multi-spectral images.
