In a world-first, scientists have discovered how to measure the speed and direction of visual signals between parts of the brain.
The breakthrough could help medical professionals better understand and treat disorders such as stroke and neurodegenerative diseases.
Lead researcher Dr KongFatt Wong-Lin, from Ulster University, said: "This Ulster University research lays an important foundation for better understanding of the human visual system.

Yogesh Kumar Meena, a 2nd year PhD student in the Intelligent Systems Research Centre at Ulster University, has participated in the international summer school of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, held in Pavia, Italy, from 30th August to 6th September, 2015. The theme of the summer school was “Advanced Biomedical Signal Processing: Signal processing and modeling in neuroengineering: Enabling technologies for rehabilitation”. About 57 participants from academia and industry were shortlisted to attend the IEEE-EMBS summer school from 20 countries. Yogesh was subsequently awarded a Third Place in the competition for the Best Research Poster presentation. The title of his research poster was “Simultaneous gaze and motor imagery hybrid BCI increases single-trial detection performance: A compatible-incompatible study”. The award was sponsored by the IEEE Italy section. A day after the summer school, Yogesh was invited to present a research talk on hybrid brain-computer Interface for rehabilitation and visited the Neuroengineering and Medical Robotics Laboratory - NearLab at the Department of Bioengineering, Politecnico di Milano, Italy. During the invited visit, he discussed his current research projects in view of possible future collaborations.
Congratulation to Yogesh for his excellent work!

The TEMPO (Total Energy Management in Production Operations) team invite you to a half day seminar “Sustainability in Industry” which will explore the latest thinking in new energy efficiency strategies and industry best practice to address sustainable energy management in the manufacturing sector.
The seminar will take place on 18 June 2014 at the City Hotel, Derry~Londonderry and will include speakers from Seagate, Invista, Action Renewables and University of Ulster's Centre for Sustainable Technologies.
The Total Energy Management for Production Operations (TEMPO) project aims to establish an effective way of monitoring total energy consumption during the manufacturing process to reduce overall energy costs. It is funded as part of Enterprise Ireland’s Technology Centres Programme and will be delivered in collaboration with the I2E2 group of companies and the International Energy Research Centre (IERC).
