This project aims to develop signal processing algorithms to extract features from inertial signals which correlate with current clinical measures of fall risk. The signals are acquired during normal unsupervised movement using a small waist-worn monitor.
The encoding of friction by tactile mechanoreceptors - the key to fingertip force control during dexterous object manipulation by humans
Unmatched human ability to control the hand so that brittle objects are gently held without slipping, or being crushed by excessive force rely on sophisticated tactile sense in the fingertips. This project will record and analyse signals which human ne...
Biofilms cause major problems in industrial and clinical settings, while standard antimicrobials and antibiotics are mostly inefficient against biofilms.
Alzheimer?s Disease (AD) is the most common form of dementia, and its incidence is rising as the population ages. This project will provide a detailed analysis and explanation for the loss of particular lipid (fat) molecules that are essential for myel...
