Reading the body’s electrical signals to treat illness
Embedded devices can treat some chronic illnesses, but a University of Melbourne engineer is now seeking to 'read' our electrical signals to predict symptoms.
Stimulating the brain – without major surgery
University of Melbourne researchers have shown the Stentrode, a tiny device inserted next to the motor cortex, can stimulate, as well as record, brain activity.
Forecasting the cycle of epileptic seizures
New University of Melbourne research confirms most people experience epileptic seizures in cycles, and a new seizure forecasting app can help them plan.
Predicting epileptic seizures, just like the weather
University of Melbourne researchers can now predict the likelihood someone with epilepsy will have a seizure that day, paving the way for a forecasting app.
Q&A: How algorithms are fighting epilepsy
A team of neuro-engineers from the University of Melbourne are developing an algorithm to fight epilepsy, by predicting when a seizure might strike.
