Automated virtual reality (VR) cognitive therapy for patients with psychosis: study protocol for a single-blind parallel group randomised controlled trial (gameChange) (2019)
Journal Article
Freeman, D., Yu, L., Kabir, T., Martin, J., Craven, M., Leal, J., …Waite, F. (2019). Automated virtual reality (VR) cognitive therapy for patients with psychosis: study protocol for a single-blind parallel group randomised controlled trial (gameChange). BMJ Open, 9(8), e031606. https://doi.org/10.1136/bmjopen-2019-031606

Introduction Many patients with psychosis experience everyday social situations as anxiety-provoking. The fears can arise, for example, from paranoia, hallucinations, social anxiety or negative-self beliefs. The fears lead patients to withdraw from a... Read More

Proportionate methods for evaluating a simple digital mental health tool (2017)
Journal Article
Davies, E. B., Craven, M. P., Martin, J. L., & Simons, L. (2017). Proportionate methods for evaluating a simple digital mental health tool. Evidence-Based Mental Health, 20(4), 112-117. doi:10.1136/eb-2017-102755

Background: Traditional evaluation methods are not keeping pace with rapid developments in mobile health. More flexible methodologies are needed to evaluate mHealth technologies, particularly simple, self-help tools. One approach is to combine a var... Read More

A high fidelity tissue-based cardiac surgical simulator (2005)
Journal Article
Ramphal, P. S., Coore, D. N., Craven, M. P., Forbes, N. F., Newman, S. M., Coye, A. A., …Silvera, B. C. (2005). A high fidelity tissue-based cardiac surgical simulator. European Journal of Cardio-Thoracic Surgery, 27(5), 910-916. doi:10.1016/j.ejcts.2004.12.049

Issues concerning the training and certification of surgical specialists have taken on great significance in the last decade. A realistic computer-assisted, tissue-based simulator developed for use in the training of cardiac surgical residents in the... Read More

Consideration of multiplexing in neural network hardware (1994)
Journal Article
Craven, M., Curtis, K., & Hayes-Gill, B. (1994). Consideration of multiplexing in neural network hardware. IEE Proceedings Circuits Devices and Systems, 141(3), 237-240. doi:10.1049/ip-cds:19941103

This paper presents the results of research into a scheme for overcoming the communications 'bottleneck' within hardware neural networks, utilising frequency division multiplexing of amplitude modulated neural signals. The introduction explains the p... Read More

Two quadrant analogue squarer circuit based on MOS square-law characteristic (1991)
Journal Article
Craven, M., & Hayes-Gill, B. (1991). Two quadrant analogue squarer circuit based on MOS square-law characteristic. Electronics Letters, 27(25), 2307–2308. doi:10.1049/el:19911429

A novel analogue CMOS circuit is presented which performs the arithmetical squaring of a voltage, using the square-law characteristic of the MOS transistor in saturation. The core circuit is constructed from four identical building blocks, which are... Read More
