Computational Neuroscience: Modelling integration of cross-modal sensory information in the brain

This project from the area of computational neuroscience is conducted in collaboration with A/Prof. Lennart Gustafsson from Luleå University of Technology, Sweden.
Multimodal integration of sensory information has clear advantages for survival: events that can be sensed in more than one modality are detected more quickly and accurately, and if the sensory information is corrupted by noise the classification of the event is more robust in multimodal percepts than in the unisensory information. In our recent papers [7,8,9,16,17,23,32] we have introduced novel Artificial Cortical Networks aka Multimodal Self-Organizing Networks, consisting of several interconnected Self-Organizing modules that model integration of multimodal data. See also [31]. In particular, we investigate a possible ways in which an audiovisual representation of language components is mapped onto a human cortex.

Neural Networks and Minimum Message Length (MML)

In these two doctoral projects Daniel Schmidt [102]
and Enes Makalic [104]
investigated application of Minimum Message Length concept to optimization of neural networks and their applications [33,40,43,48].

Modelling Autistic Learning

This project from the area of computational neuroscience is conducted in collaboration with A/Prof. Lennart Gustafsson from Luleå  University of Technology, Sweden.
Autism is a developmental disorder in which attention shifting is known to be restricted. Using an artificial neural network model we study how detailed learning in narrow fields develops when attention shifting between different sources of stimuli is restricted by familiarity preference. Our model is based on modified Self-Organizing Maps (SOM) supported by the attention shift mechanism. Our attention shift model based on growing familiarity of the artificial neural network to a specific source of stimuli is an original and novel achievement of this project.
The novelty seeking and the attention shifting restricted by familiarity preference learning modes are investigated for stimuli of low and high dimensionality which require different techniques to visualise feature maps. To make learning more biologically plausible we project the n-dimensional stimuli onto a unity (n+1)-dimensional hyper-sphere. The distance between a stimulus and a weight vector can now be simply measured by the post-synaptic activities. The modified "dot-product" learning law that keeps evolving weights on the surface of the hyper-sphere has been employed. The idea of projecting stimuli on the sphere surface is another original achievement of this project. One of the recently investigated problem are the theoretical foundations of an early intervention that will help to understand the principle of training to mould an autistic behaviour into a normal one.
The results have presented in the following publications [38,39,44,45,47,51,83,84].

Hybrid analog-digital biologically-motivated neural networks

This is a completed PhD project of Dr Murray Mount from the area of computational neuroscience.
The objective was to investigate, design, simulate, and possibly build in a VLSI technology a hybrid analog-digital biologically-motivated three-dimensional neural processor. Such a neural processor can be used as a computational tool in problems involving real-time perception, control and adaptation, and in simulation of biological mechanisms found in neural systems such as those of the cortex.
This work resulted in a number of conference presentations and publications [106,62,74,79,80]

Interpretation of a class of ophthalmological images

(with Dr J. F. Boyce from the Image Processing Group, King's College London and the Department of Ophthalmology, St. Thomas' Hospital London). In this project we investigate theoretical aspects and develop relevant image segmentation algorithms to be used as a part of a practical information system of interpretation Posterior Capsular Opacification (PCO) images. PCO images are taken to monitor the state of a patient's vision after the implantation of the intra-ocular lenses during the cataract operation. The image interpretation system provides a clinician with a quantitative measure of opacification that can occur after the surgery. This opacification gradually impairs the patient's vision annulling the benefits of implantation of artificial lenses. Recent research effort is directed towards application of partial differential equations in image enhancement and segmentation.
Results of investigations have been presented in [50,54,55,56,66,71,61,60,63] and [67,68,82,87,88,89,90,91,92,93]. The project was funded by ARC small grants (1997, 1998) and by the British Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) Visiting Fellowship Grant (1997).

Wavelet transform Lattice Quantisation

with application in image coding (with Dr M. Shnaider). In this project we investigate theoretical aspects and applications of two-dimensional wavelet transform and lattice quantisation in image coding. The combination of biorthogonal wavelet transform and lattice vector quantisation of the resulting wavelet coefficients has proven to be a powerful technique for image compression. Lattice quantisation based on the D-lattices offers superior speed of compression with near optimal compression ratio if an appropriate method of bit allocation is used. Some results of the investigations have been presented in [49,58,64,107,75,76,77,81,95,96].

Advanced Algorithms for Ultrasonic Imaging

Participants: Dr N. Bhattacharjee completed PhD thesis [105], Charles Greif, Robert Prain - doctoral candidate, Suhardi Tjoa - completed Masters thesis and Dr Grant Hampson - completed PhD thesis [108].
This project spans areas of signal and image processing with embedded hardware implementation of resulting computational algorithms. The work started in 1994 as a doctoral project [108] and resulted in prototype an ultrasonic imaging system built around 1998. Original results related to implementation of the phase shift through the digital rotation of ultrasonic signal converted into a complex-number domain have been presented in a number of publications [42,53,85,86,69,72,73].
