Projects

EEG

Our lab collects EEG data to answer questions about how the brain processes faces, about how sleep affects brains, and how the brains of people with Parkinson’s disease and Multiple Sclerosis are affected.

Postural Sway

Postural sway can be measuresd using a force plate or balance plate (or even a mobile phone accelerometer or a Nintendo Wii). This is a place for all the projects I am involved in that utilise postural sway.

Sleep Project

We are doing online experiments and surveys investigating the impact of sleep on essential human functions such as attention, memory, mood and decision-making.

Our Health In Our Hands

Our Health in Our Hands aims to transform healthcare by developing new personalised health technologies and solutions in collaboration with patients, clinicians and health care providers.

Parkinson’s disease

We are working to develop new measures for tracking and predicting disease progression in PD using simple physiological measures and machine learning.
