15:00 - SEMINAR - 'Where the rubber meets the road’: The centrality of what people decide to do during the period between awareness of threat and impact of the hazard More Information
Most of the limited research reported in Australia about community bushfire safety has focused on peoples’ intentions to prepare for bushfires. Relatively little research has focused on what people decide and do when under threat of bushfire attack. I will present findings from research following (...)
Tuesday 09
13:00 - SEMINAR - Magnetic fields and the brain: myths and mechanisms of circuit reorganisation : School of Anatomy & Human Biology Seminar Series More Information
The Seminar: Pulsed magnetic fields (also known as repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation; rTMS) provide significant therapeutic benefits in a wide range of neurological conditions including stroke, depression and tinnitus. Despite these promising clinical outcomes, surprisingly little is (...)

15:45 - SEMINAR - Physics Seminar : A new perspective on renormalization: invariant actions, a dynamical DNA More Information
A new perspective on renormalization is taken by use of an iterative wavelet based averaging as suggested by Stephane Mallat. This replaces the band limited Fourier transforms used currently. The result is a hierarchy of fundamental excitations of the system based on the complexity of the (...)
