The long term effects on the child are not fully known; however an association between exposure to fasting in utero and an increased incidence of mental impairment in children has been shown.
  Machine Learning and Cognitive Modelling Applied to Video Games
  Dr K Chen
Applications accepted all year round
Video games have been viewed as an ideal test bed for the study of AI. However, most of the academic work in this area focused on traditional board and card games where limited AI techniques have been tested.
  Psychological intervention, cognitive training, functional rehabilitation and well-being in clinical populations with brain degeneration
  Dr A Ho
