Data and analytics companies continue to dominate funding in digital health, but a couple of emerging sectors are starting to gain some traction: brain sensor technologies and diagnostics.

The overall amount of health tech investment was down in February from the same period last year, but venture capitalists and strategic players in the sector were as active as ever.  Even though funders invested 33 percent less last month than they did the previous year, deal volume nearly doubled. In February of this year, 32 deals closed for a total of $107.95 million invested, compared with 17 deals in February 2012 for $161.51 million.

Here’s a quick snapshot of activity last month:
