Car rides are often perceived as dull by the passengers, especially children. Therefore, we aim to introduce a system fostering a collaborative and communicative experience in this environment. This paper presents the design for a game played together by all car-occupants, including the driver, according to their abilities and capacities. A fully(More)
We explored whether 810nm near-infrared light (NIr) offered neuroprotection and/or improvement in locomotor activity in an acute 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP)-treated mouse model of Parkinson's disease. Mice received MPTP and 810nm NIr treatments, or not, and were tested for locomotive activity in an open-field test. Thereafter, brains(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine whether near-infrared light (NIr) treatment reduces clinical signs and/or offers neuroprotection in a subacute 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP) monkey model of Parkinson disease. METHODS We implanted an optical fiber device that delivered NIr (670 nm) to the midbrain of macaque monkeys, close to the substantia nigra(More)
OBJECT The authors of this study used a newly developed intracranial optical fiber device to deliver near-infrared light (NIr) to the midbrain of 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA)-lesioned rats, a model of Parkinson's disease. The authors explored whether NIr had any impact on apomorphine-induced turning behavior and whether it was neuroprotective. METHODS Two NIr(More)
We have used the MPTP (1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine) mouse model to explore whether (i) the neuroprotective effect of near infrared light (NIr) treatment in the SNc is dose-dependent and (ii) the relationship between tyrosine hydroxylase (TH)+ terminal density and glial cells in the caudate-putamen complex (CPu). Mice received MPTP(More)
We have shown previously that near-infrared light (NIr), when applied at the same time as a parkinsonian insult (e.g. 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine; MPTP), reduces behavioural deficits and offers neuroprotection. Here, we explored whether the timing of NIr intervention—either before, at the same time or after the MPTP insult—was important.(More)
A range of technology for monitoring electricity consumption at residential homes is gradually becoming available to users. Almost all of these systems, however, only aim to assist users with reducing their total power consumption, without being concerned too much about how those savings are actually made. Our research, aims to provide a basis for design of(More)
