Research Australian Centre for Radio Frequency Bioeffects Research, investigating:
Short and long-term effects of radio frequency radiation on nervous tissue (animals and tissue cultures);
Studies on responses in human subjects;
Modelling of molecular interactions; and
Precise mode of absorption of radio waves into human tissue.
ACRBR Bioelectromagnetism Bioelectromagnetism examines the electric, electromagnetic, and magnetic phenomena which arise in biological tissues, including:
Behaviour of excitable tissue (the sources)
Electric currents and potentials in the volume conductor
Magnetic field at and beyond the body
Response of excitable cells to electric and magnetic field stimulation
Intrinsic electric and magnetic properties of the tissue.
Bioimpedance Resonant Recognition Model (RRM) Biosignal Processing Biosignals attempts to identify aspects of our sensing and our actions.
Requires working with noisy signals with little prior information, making traditional data analysis techniques redundant.
The Biosignal group is attempting to work on biosignals using information as the basis for identifying features and classifying the signals. Bioimpedance measurements are a painless, simple, non-invasive and low-cost way of assessing the electrical conductivity of the body.
When applied to Biologically Active Points it is a means of measuring how well bioenergy can flow within the energy meridians. RRM presents an engineering approach developed by Prof. Cosic for structure-function analysis of protein and DNA sequences.
Proteins are linear macromolecules that drive most of the biochemical processes in living systems.
These processes are based on selective interactions between proteins and their targets.
The RRM can be used to analyse protein structure/function relationship with the aim of predicting functional epitopes that can act as sites for mutagenesis resulting in a change to the structure/function relationship.
