"In the framework of signal transport, photonics has already demonstrated its superior performance over electronic approaches and it is therefore critical that short optical pulse monitoring will be capable of measuring an optical signal in its whole complex nature – i.e., in both amplitude and phase. With the relentless increase in optical channel bit rates and the recent global trend towards opt ...

Transformative Social Innovation Theory project (TRANSIT)

Start date: Jan 1, 2014, End date: Dec 31, 2017,

The aim of TRANSIT (Transformative Social Innovation Theory) is to build a theory of social innovation that is useful not only to academics, but also to policy makers, social entrepreneurs, and other stakeholders. The starting point for TRANSIT is the need to understand transformative social innovations: social innovations that contribute to systemic changes that address urgent societal challenges ...

Cardiac Control of Fear in Brain (CCFIB)

Start date: Jun 1, 2013, End date: May 31, 2017,

"Imagine what might be possible if you can turn fear on and off. In exploring the contribution of bodily arousal to emotions, we uncovered a specific mechanism whereby the brain’s processing of threatening / fear stimuli is ‘gated’ by the occurrence of heartbeats: Fear stimuli presented when the heart has just made a beat are processed more effectively than at other times, modulating their emotion ...

Serendipity in Science, Technology and Innovation (Serendipity)

Start date: Sep 1, 2014, End date: Aug 31, 2016,

"The Serendipity project aims to investigate the role, management and impact of serendipity on research performance. The key focus of the project is on the under-researched topic of ""serendipity"", the notion in science policy that basic research leads to unexpected valuable outcomes, and since the outcomes of basic research are impossible to predict, research itself is difficult and perhaps even ...

"Why individuals cooperate is an evolutionary puzzle. One longstandingtheory is that nutritionally poor environments reduce individuals’chances of breeding independently, forcing cooperation with otherindividuals. The proposed project will focus on testing this in thefield, using socially plastic species - insects that can be social orsolitary: Acacia thrips (Thysanoptera) and Halictine bees(Hyme ...

... ries of the influence of expectations on conscious perception.Functionally, we will test whether expectation-inducing stimuli have to be consciously perceived, attended, or accompanied by low-level retinal changes, in order to influence subsequent conscious perception.At a neural level, we will explore the neural changes that accompany expectation-based influences on conscious perception, using bo ...

The progression of cells through mitosis is tightly regulated to ensure the integrity of chromosomal transmission and cell division. The proper orchestration of mitotic progression is controlled by the balanced activity of mitotic kinases and counteracting phosphatases. Misregulation of these controls can be detrimental causing loss of entire chromosomes and aneuploidy. Considering that mitotic ki ...

"Fish populations are declining in inland waters in many parts of Europe due, in part, to the impact of aquatic pollutants on fish health. In many aquatic environments fish are exposed to effluents from wastewater treatment works (WwTW), and these can contain complex mixtures of chemicals arising from human waste. The impact of many of these contaminants and their mixtures on fish health is unknow ...
