Imaging human cortical responses to intraneural microstimulation using magnetoencephalography (2019)
Journal Article
O'Neill, G. C., Watkins, R. H., Ackerley, R., Barratt, E. L., Sengupta, A., Asghar, M., …Francis, S. T. (2019). Imaging human cortical responses to intraneural microstimulation using magnetoencephalography. NeuroImage, 189, 329-340. doi:10.1016/j.neuroimage.2019.01.017

The sensation of touch in the glabrous skin of the human hand is conveyed by thousands of fast-conducting mechanoreceptive afferents, which can be categorised into four distinct types. The spiking properties of these afferents in the periphery in re... Read More

Mathematical and experimental investigation of water migration in plant xylem (2017)
Journal Article
Hong, J., Liu, S., Glover, P., Wu, S., & Yan, Y. (2017). Mathematical and experimental investigation of water migration in plant xylem. Journal of Bionic Engineering, 14(4), 622-630. doi:10.1016/S1672-6529(16)60428-6

Plant can take water from soil up to several metres high. However, the mechanism of how water rises against gravity is still controversially discussed despite a few mechanisms have been proposed. Also, there still lacks of a critical transportation m... Read More

Experimental measurement of dynamic concentration of nanofluid in laminar flow (2017)
Journal Article
Hong, J., Liu, S., Yan, Y., & Glover, P. (in press). Experimental measurement of dynamic concentration of nanofluid in laminar flow. Experimental Thermal and Fluid Science, 88, doi:10.1016/j.expthermflusci.2017.06.022. ISSN 0894-1777

Nanofluid is thought to have a potential enhancement in heat transfer behaviour of fluid. The nanoparticle concentration in nanofluid is one of the most important factors that affect the nanofluid behaviour. The static concentration was applied in th... Read More

A new generation of magnetoencephalography: room temperature measurements using optically-pumped magnetometers (2017)
Journal Article
Boto, E., Meyer, S. S., Shah, V., Alem, O., Knappe, S., Kruger, P., …Brookes, M. J. (2017). A new generation of magnetoencephalography: room temperature measurements using optically-pumped magnetometers. NeuroImage, 149, doi:10.1016/j.neuroimage.2017.01.034. ISSN 1053-8119

Advances in the field of quantum sensing mean that magnetic field sensors, operating at room temperature, are now able to achieve sensitivity similar to that of cryogenically cooled devices (SQUIDs). This means that room temperature magnetoencephalog... Read More

Effect of head pitch and roll orientations on magnetically induced vertigo (2015)
Journal Article
Mian, O. S., GLOVER, P., Li, Y., Antunes, A., & Day, B. L. (2016). Effect of head pitch and roll orientations on magnetically induced vertigo. Journal of Physiology, 594(4), 1051-1067. doi:10.1113/JP271513

High strength static magnetic fields are known to induce vertigo, believed to be via stimulation of the vestibular system. The leading hypothesis (Lorentz forces) predicts that the induced vertigo should depend on the orientation of the magnetic fiel... Read More

A dynamic model of the eye nystagmus response to high magnetic fields (2014)
Journal Article
Glover, P. M., Li, Y., Antunes, A., Mian, O. S., & Day, B. L. (2014). A dynamic model of the eye nystagmus response to high magnetic fields. Physics in Medicine and Biology, 59(3), doi:10.1088/0031-9155/59/3/631. ISSN 0031-9155

It was recently shown that high magnetic fields evoke nystagmus in human subjects with functioning vestibular systems. The proposed mechanism involves interaction between ionic currents in the endolymph of the vestibular labyrinth and the static magn... Read More

Reference layer artefact subtraction (RLAS): a novel method of minimizing EEG artefacts during simultaneous fMRI (2014)
Journal Article
Chowdhury, M. E., Mullinger, K. J., Glover, P., & Bowtell, R. W. (2014). Reference layer artefact subtraction (RLAS): a novel method of minimizing EEG artefacts during simultaneous fMRI. NeuroImage, 84, doi:10.1016/j.neuroimage.2013.08.039. ISSN 1053-8119

Large artefacts compromise EEG data quality during simultaneous fMRI. These artefact voltages pose heavy demands on the bandwidth and dynamic range of EEG amplifiers and mean that even small fractional variations in the artefact voltages give rise to... Read More

Interaction of MRI field gradients with the human body (2009)
Journal Article
Glover, P. (2009). Interaction of MRI field gradients with the human body. Physics in Medicine and Biology, 54(21), doi:10.1088/0031-9155/54/21/R01. ISSN 0031-9155

In this review, the effects of low-frequency electromagnetic fields encountered specifically during magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) are examined. The primary biological effect at frequencies of between 100 and 5000 Hz (typical of MRI magnetic field... Read More
