Vestibular diagnostics, auditory prosthesis, auditory and vestibular electroneurophysiology
There are currently no positions open.

- Signal processing algorithms for vestibular diagnostics (Meniere’s Disease, BPPV).

- Signal processing algorithms for auditory prosthesis.

- Models for vestibular dynamic responses of the semicircular canals and otolithic organs.

- Models for electrical and audio stimulation of the cochlea consequent to high pulse rate electrical stimulation of the cochlea and modiolar stimulation.

- Improved understanding of auditory and vestibular electroneurophysiology.

- Speech Processing and speaker identification - improvements to and development of algorithms using optimization techniques and wavelet techniques. One patent has been generated.

- And most recently diagnostic development for neurological and neurodegenerative disorders Parkinson’s Disease, Schizophrenia, Meniere’s and Depression. Two patents have been generated.

- This work is being extended into separating unipolar and bipolar depression, separating Autism, Asperger’s and ADHD, separating Meniere’s Disease, peripheral vertigo and Central vertigo, and finally separating schizo-effective disorder and schizophrenia.

- This application is to extended current research into separating Lewy Body Dementia, Parkinson’s Disease Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease.
