Can a bacteria brain play Ping-pong and Go?

Although initial discussions regarding bioelectricity and its role in the fundamental understanding of various cellular behaviours took place in the 1970s, the bioelectrical view of cells as a more general concept has remained limited to the fringes of biological research for five decades.

Interbrain dynamical functions for anticipating synchronisation under mutual interactions

How can we communicate with other members of society and synchronise our motion in real-time? Crucial to a sense of communication is the ability to entrain perceptually with other members of society, i.e., to be able to follow and to lead, while maintaining individual autonomy. Read more

Development of a collaborative robot – human-robot collaboration

Robots work effectively in factories. For example, in car factories, huge robotic arms pick up car parts and join them to the skeleton of the car, working at less than millimetre and millisecond precision. Read more

Animats - neural culture-controlled robots for closed-loop neuroscience

The project will continue research started at the University of Reading on animats - robotic platforms controlled in real time by activity of biological neuron cultures - and will investigate the methods for implementing efficient conditioning protocols. Read more

Designing Technology for Personalised Nutrition

This PhD investigates the design of technology to provide personalised nutrition advice. Non-communicable diseases such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease are major challenges globally, and can be addressed, in part, by eating a healthier diet. Read more

Delivering Sustainable Energy Solutions to Ports

Ports are major sources of greenhouse gas emissions as they commonly move up to 10,000 containers a day from ship to road or rail transport and correspondingly in the reverse direction from land transport onto ships. Read more

Biomechanics and activity analysis in the wild

Project Overview. Movement analysis and recording in humans has been confined to dedicated gait and motion capture facilities, but this only records movements for a single part of one day in an unusual environment. Read more

Fractional order modelling of neurons

Project Overview. Fractional order calculus (integro-differential equations that are of non-integral order) is an emerging methodology with wide applications across all areas of Physics and Engineering. Read more

Next generation wearable healthcare sensors

The aim of this project is to research and develop the next generation of Internet of Things (IoT) connected wearable sensor technologies for applications in healthcare and physiotherapy. Read more

Deriving functional neurons from hIPSCs

Neuronal networks grown on petri dishes encode information as electrical activity. This activity is dictated by their underlying structural and functional connectivity. Read more
