Deriving mental and emotional states from movement co-ordination patterns

A number of commercial software exists that allow deriving emotions of users based on their facial expressions (e.g. a smiley face is typically interpreted as a happy state, whereas a frowning face is often seen as representing angry or sad state). Read more

Health behaviours in sport

Why do people behave the way they do? What impact can an individual’s behaviour have on their physical health? What are the unique challenges and opportunities experienced by people who participate in sport?. Read more

Design Apothecary of Embodied Knowledge for Inclusive Spaces

The Design Apothecary of Embodied Knowledge aims to bring together hybrid processes informed by design, movement practices and emerging technologies to examine how we can better map thinking in ways of movement in architectural design. Read more

Integrating information from vision and touch in virtual reality telepresence systems

Virtual reality systems are fundamentally altering how we study human sensory perception. Similarly, to build good virtual reality systems we need a clear understanding of how the brain integrates sensory information into a robust and useful percept. Read more

Understanding and identifying the risk of pain in people undergoing hysteroscopy procedures

Hysteroscopy procedures have traditionally been considered low-pain or 'pain free' procedures, but recent research evidence suggests that they may actually be associated with significant pain during the procedure for a large proportion of patients. Read more

The construction and development of urban areas is a relatively recent phenomenon. Urbanisation does, however, impose a range of advantages and disadvantages for biological organisms and which can bring them into conflict with humans. Read more

How observers could represent a 3D space
