We caught up with futurist Peter Bishop when he was in Brisbane recently to learn more about his passion for teaching the...Read More
Could the manufacture of the integrated circuits and chips for our everyday electronic devices be made simpler, safer and cheaper simply by being able to switch coloured light on and off?
Researchers from QUT, Germany’s Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and Belgium’s Ghent University have stepped towards this by pioneering a system that modulates visible, coloured light to change the reactions of a powerful chemical coupling agent.
Researchers have shown how to write any magnetic pattern desired onto nanowires, which could help computers mimic how the brain processes information. Much current computer hardware, such as hard drives, use magnetic memory devices. These rely on magnetic states – the direction microscopic magnets are pointing – to encode and read information.Read More
A study examining how the brain decodes pitch could inform further development of cochlear implants. Picture yourself with a friend in a crowded restaurant. The din of other diners, the clattering of dishes, the muffled notes of background music, the voice of your friend, not to mention your own – all compete for your brain’s attention.Read More
Epilepsy, a seizure disorder, affects more than 2 million people in the United States, making it the fourth most common neurological condition in the nation, according to the Epilepsy Foundation.
Still, the general public doesn’t know much about the chronic condition. College of Medicine faculty member Dilip Pandey said lack of information isn’t to blame. “There are volumes of information,” said Pandey, associate professor of neurology and rehabilitation.Read More
