This interesting session showcases a Melbourne innovation that has the potential to dramatically improve the life of patients who have epilepsy. For nurses, it offers early warning signs that a seizure may be about to occur. Associate Professor David Grayden explains the research that is underway to develop this new technology and looks at how it will work in the field.
Professor Grayden is Associate Professor and Reader in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Deputy Head (Academic) of the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering and the Discipline of Biomedical Engineering. David's main research interests are in understanding how the brain processes information and how best to present information to the brain using medical bionics, such as the bionic ear and bionic eye. He is also conducting research in epileptic seizure prediction and electrical stimulation to prevent or stop epileptic seizures.
