The Fear of Spiders Questionnaire (FSQ), an 18-item self-report questionnaire assessing spider phobia, was developed in an attempt to complement the information provided by the Spider Phobia Questionnaire (SPQ). Data obtained from 338 undergraduates revealed that the FSQ was able to discriminate phobics from nonphobics, and indicated decrements in phobic(More)
Nonlinear chemical medium can be used to perform information processing functions. In typical applications information is coded in excitation pulses and required operations are performed by interaction of pulses forced by intentionally introduced geometrical structure of the medium. Here we describe a structured system that seems promising for information(More)
This deliverable complements the link to experimental results and differential equation models from ICFPAN that were missing in deliverable D3.1. Abstract Here we review and extend models on different scales for a computing architecture made from networks of excitable chemical droplets. The model system of the Belousov-Zhabotinsky (BZ) reaction enclosed in(More)
Lipid covered droplets containing solution of reagents of oscilla-tory Belousov-Zhabotinsky reaction and surrounded by hydrocarbons form an interesting system for studying information processing operations that can be directly executed by a chemical medium. Activa-1 tions are transmitted between droplets in contact so the ensemble of droplets can be(More)
Cooperation plays the crucial role in shared space of the homecare processes. It is a rather hard task to ensure effective cooperation in home care environment. This is due to variability of schedules, tasks and mobility of both patients and carers. In this paper, we discuss sensor network technology that can facilitate and improve home care cooperation(More)
This paper discusses teaching and learning strategies of Wireless Sensor Networks technology in a new postgraduate subject run at the Faculty of Engineering and IT, University of Technology, Sydney. The aim is to present the role of using practice based and multidisciplinary methodologies in the context of new ICT technologies. This includes shared(More)
