  • Investigating the dynamics of a population of spiking neurons across spatial scales

    Malluwawadu, Sanduni Chavinka (The University of Waikato, 2021)
    Mean-field models describe bulk neural activity in terms of population-average action potential (spike) rates, but do not attempt to address the variations in the firing activity of individual neurons and the interactions ...
  • Implantable electrode structures and their RF effects in MRI machines

    McCabe, Steven Owen (The University of Waikato, 2019)
    Medical implants incorporating long insulated conductors can generate a serious heating hazard to a patient undergoing a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan. Under the high-power RF field from an MRI machine, the conductors ...
  • Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy applied to pasture, titanium, and bioplastics

    Jull, Harrisson Balabat (The University of Waikato, 2018)
    Precision agriculture is a farming practice that makes production more efficient. Farmers are able to treat infield variability optimising efficiency, growth, and yield by tailoring the time, rate, and type of fertilizer ...
  • The Electrical Properties of Interfacial Double Layers

    Jones, Mark Hedley (University of Waikato, 2016)
    When solids and liquids are brought together, interfacial double-layers are likely to form. They are too small to feel or see so their presence goes mostly unnoticed at the macroscopic level. A double layer is essentially ...
  • Dynamics and precursor signs for phase transitions in neural systems

    Negahbani, Ehsan (University of Waikato, 2014)
    This thesis investigates neural state transitions associated with sleep, seizure and anaesthesia. The aim is to address the question: How does a brain traverse the critical threshold between distinct cortical states, both ...
