Research Highlights

ISS Orbiting Earth 

The first neuromorphic devices to reach space are a technology test case. They will record ‘space lightning’.

Researcher looking at brain images 

A Western Sydney University researcher is investigating the neuroscience underpinning consciousness.

space junk orbiting around earth 

Biologically-inspired cameras can track satellites that even the best optical telescope cannot, thanks to Western Sydney University’s revolutionary, world-first approach to space imaging.

Mother and baby participating in research project 

The connection between mothers and babies may provide important clues for early identification of dyslexia.

Two researchers with BrainWaves machine 

Technology developed by Western researchers can extend the viability of brain slices up to 36 hours.

A checklist for speech success 

A new tool can assess communication skills in young Indigenous children in the languages they speak at home.

Electronic gloves help transfer knowledge from master surgeons to students.

Baby Babble 

Going gaa-gaa over babies has evolutionary roots, and may help infants to develop the power of speech.

VitalCore prototype 

Tackling the condition of sleep apnoea could be as simple as slipping on a T-shirt developed by Western Sydney University researchers.

Baby playing with toys 

Taking a community-based approach to early childhood language promotes children’s communication and identifies hearing problems.

MARCS Institute News

The International Centre for Neuromorphic Systems (ICNS) are excited to announce they have teamed up with Intel to build a world-first brain-scale neuromorphic computer, using reconfigurable hardware and open-source software, to learn more about how the brain works and how to build better AI.
Western Sydney University’s International Centre for Neuromorphic Systems (ICNS) have been recognised across the Defence Connect network for successfully securing grant funding from the Australian Government’s Moon to Mars initiative. This funding will help develop new Australian technologies for potential use on NASA’s Moon to Mars mission.
Researchers from the MARCS Institute for Brain, Behaviour and Development have published a new research paper and recommended guidelines for music use for people with dementia after a successful trial program.
