An account is given of a recent proposal to complete modern quantum theory by adding a characterisation of consciousness. The resulting theory is applied to give mechanisms for typical parapsycho-logical phenomena, and ways of testing it are discussed.
The growing availability of COTS (Commercial-Off-The-Shelf) components in the software market has concretized the possibility of building whole systems based on components. In this multitude, a recurrent problem is the location and selection of the components that best fit the requirements. Commercial repositories that offer search mechanisms have reduced… (More)
This paper describes the improvements to the theory of velocity selective recording and some simulation results. In this method, activity in different groups of axons is discriminated by their propagation velocity. A multi-electrode cuff and an array of amplifiers produce multiple neural signals; if artificial delays are inserted and the signals are added,… (More)

This paper introduces the notion of the education graph, a conceptual representation of the resources and intercon-nections at the heart of the learning process. We present our latest work on the Talis Aspire family of products that, through the use of Linked Data principles and technologies, enables the assembly and application of a rich education graph… (More)
This paper describes improvements to the technique of velocity selective recording (VSR) in which multiple neural signals are matched and summed to identify excited axon populations in terms of velocity. This form of recording has been termed intrinsic velocity selective recording (IVSR). The signals are acquired using a multi-electrode cuff (MEC) which is… (More)
