Novel Electrodes for rapid electrophysiological recording


Rapid monitoring of emergencies including heart attack and stroke are limited by electrode movements.  This project aims at using a range of methods to improve electrodes including advanced materials, electronic cancellation and embedded computing.

Research Location

Electrical and Information Engineering

Program Type



The electrodes will be optimised in terms of materials, shape, size, number of contacts and depth for recording capability and mechanical strength. Materials of interest are nickel, gold, silver and carbon nanotubes. Analog and digital electronic techniques will be used to develop movement cancellation.  An APAI scholarship stipend of $27,222 per annum (tax exempt) is available in collaboration with Heard Systems.  Additionally all full time research students in the School of Electrical and Information Engineering are eligible for an additional Norman I Price Top-up award of $7000 per annum.
