  • Firing multistability in a locally active memristive neuron model 

    Lin, Hairong; Wang, Chunhua; Sun, Yichuang; Yao, Wei (2020-05-19)
    The theoretical, numerical and experimental demonstrations of firing dynamics in isolated neuron are of great significance for the understanding of neural function in human brain. In this paper, a new type of locally active ...
  • Machine learning and computational design 

    Carta, Silvio (2020-05)
    The use of computers in design is substantially different today from what it was only 30 years ago, and light-years ahead of how things were designed before computers entered the scene 60 years ago. This article discusses ...
  • Does Expression of Grounded Affect in a Hexapod Robot Elicit More Prosocial Responses? 

    Hickton, Luke; Lewis, Matthew; Koay, Kheng; Cañamero, Lola (EPSRC UK-RAS Network, 2020-05-07)
    We consider how non-humanoid robots can communicate their affective state via bodily forms of communication, and the extent to which this can influence human response. We propose a simple model of grounded affect and kinesic ...

  • Binding of Filamentous Actin to CaMKII as a Potential Mechanism for the Regulation of Bidirectional Synaptic Plasticity by betaCaMKII in Cerebellar Purkinje Cells 

    Matos Pinto, Thiago; Schilstra, Maria; Roque, Antonio; Steuber, Volker (2020-06-02)
    Calcium-calmodulin dependent protein kinase II (CaMKII) regulates many forms of synaptic plasticity, but little is known about its functional role during plasticity induction in the cerebellum. Experiments have indicated ...
  • Welcoming back my arm: Affective touch increases body ownership following right hemisphere stroke 

    Jenkinson, Paul; Papadaki, Cristina; Besharati, Sahba; Moro, Valentina; Gobbetto, Valeria; Crucianelli, Laura; Kirsch, Louise P; Avesani, Renato; Ward, Nick; Fotopoulou, Aikaterini (2020-03-28)
    Right hemisphere stroke can impair the ability to recognise one’s contralesional body parts as belonging to one’s self. The study of this so-called ‘disturbed sense of limb ownership’ can provide unique insights into the ...

  • Balancing Interoception and Exteroception: Vestibular and Spatial Contributions to the Bodily Self 

    Ponzo, Sonia (2019-11-18)
    Experiencing the body as a coherent, stable, entity involves the dynamic integration of information from several internal (i.e. interoceptive) and external (i.e. exteroceptive) sensory sources, to produce a feeling that ...

  • Preventing problematic internet use during the COVID-19 pandemic: Consensus guidance 

    Király, Orsolya; Potenza, Marc N; Stein, Dan J; King, Daniel L; Hodgins, David C; Saunders, John B; Griffiths, Mark D; Gjoneska, Biljana; Billieux, Joël; Brand, Matthias; Abbott, Max W; Chamberlain, Samuel R; Corazza, Ornella; Burkauskas, Julius; Sales, Célia M D; Montag, Christian; Lochner, Christine; Grünblatt, Edna; Wegmann, Elisa; Martinotti, Giovanni; Lee, Hae Kook; Rumpf, Hans-Jürgen; Castro-Calvo, Jesús; Rahimi-Movaghar, Afarin; Higuchi, Susumu; Menchon, Jose M; Zohar, Joseph; Pellegrini, Luca; Walitza, Susanne; Fineberg, Naomi A; Demetrovics, Zsolt (2020-07)
    As a response to the COVID-19 pandemic, many governments have introduced steps such as spatial distancing and "staying at home" to curb its spread and impact. The fear resulting from the disease, the 'lockdown' situation, ...
  • Population Study of Ovarian Cancer Risk Prediction for Targeted Screening and Prevention 

    Gaba, Faiza; Blyuss, Oleg; Liu, Xinting; Goyal, Shivam; Lahoti, Nishant; Chandrasekaran, Dhivya; Kurzer, Margarida; Kalsi, Jatinderpal; Sanderson, Saskia; Lanceley, Anne; Ahmed, Munaza; Side, Lucy; Gentry-Maharaj, Aleksandra; Wallis, Yvonne; Wallace, Andrew; Waller, Jo; Luccarini, Craig; Yang, Xin; Dennis, Joe; Dunning, Alison; Lee, Andrew; Antoniou, Antonis C; Legood, Rosa; Menon, Usha; Jacobs, Ian; Manchanda, Ranjit (2020-05-15)
    Unselected population-based personalised ovarian cancer (OC) risk assessment combining genetic/epidemiology/hormonal data has not previously been undertaken. We aimed to perform a feasibility study of OC risk stratification ...
  • ‘Complexity’ as a rhetorical smokescreen for UK public health inaction on diet 

    Savona, Natalie; Thompson, Claire; Smith, Dianna; Cummins, Steven (2020-04-30)
    ‘Complexity’ is theorised as a characteristic of modern food systems that poses a challenge to improving population diets. This paper seeks to explore the discursive deployment of ‘complexity’ in the context of public ...
  • Adaptive Robot Mediated Upper Limb Training Using Electromyogram Based Muscle Fatigue Indicators 

    Thacham-Poyil, Azeemsha; Steuber, Volker; Amirabdollahian, Farshid (2020-05-29)
    Studies on improving the adaptability of upper limb rehabilitation training do not often consider the implications of muscle fatigue sufficiently. In this study, electromyogram features were used as fatigue indicators in ...
  • Organisational Change and the Politics of Identity: Four Reflexive Inquiries into Ordinary Power Struggles and their Role in Shaping Organisations and Individuals 

    Askeland, Maj Karin (2019-12-18)
    This thesis sheds light on the ideals we construct in the workplace and how these emergent ideologies mask over power dynamics and political struggles for meaning and identity. Challenging the idea that ‘office politics’ ...

  • Growth rules for repair of asynchronous irregular network models following peripheral lesions 

    Sinha, Ankur; Metzner, Christoph; Davey, Neil; Adams, Roderick; Schmuker, Michael; Steuber, Volker (2019-11-14)
