Modelling and investigation of NMDAR-mediated calcium signalling at Hippocampal Dendritic Spine in Alzheimer’s disease
(Lincoln University, 2016-08-25)
Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a devastating, incurable neurodegenerative disease affecting millions of people worldwide. Dysregulation of intracellular Ca2+ signalling has been observed as an early event prior to the presence ...
Flux balance analysis to model microbial metabolism for electricity generation
(Lincoln University, 2013)
Microbial fuel cells (MFCs) are bioelectrochemcial devices that possess a similar design to a fuel cell, with an anode and a cathode connected through an electrical circuit. Unlike fuel cells, MFCs use microorganisms as ...
Modelling single cell dynamics of protein networks associated with synaptic plasticity
(Lincoln University, 2015)
Synaptic plasticity, an emergent property of the synaptic networks, has shown strong correlation to one of the essential functions of the brain, memory formation. Through understanding synaptic plasticity, we may discover ...
