Journal Article
Nikolaidou, A., Phillips, N., Tsompanas, M. A., & Adamatzky, A. (2023). Responsive fungal insoles for pressure detection. Scientific Reports, 13(1), 4595. https://doi.org/10.1038/s41598-023-31594-9

Mycelium bound composites are promising materials for a diverse range of applications including wearables and building elements. Their functionality surpasses some of the capabilities of traditionally passive materials, such as synthetic fibres, reco... Read More about Responsive fungal insoles for pressure detection.

Rethinking living matter: Animate behaviours of fungal composites (2022)
Presentation / Conference
Nikolaidou, A., & Adamatzky, A. (2022, September). Rethinking living matter: Animate behaviours of fungal composites. Paper presented at SEEDS International Conference 2022, University of West of England, Bristol

Smart materials integrating conventional soft electronics e.g. sensors and actuators, are widely used in the building and wearable industries, contributing to the depletion of natural resources and having a vast environmental impact. In this paper, a... Read More about Rethinking living matter: Animate behaviours of fungal composites.

Interspecies Urban Planning, Reimaging City Infrastructures with Slime Mould (2019)
Book Chapter
Dillon, T. (2019). Interspecies Urban Planning, Reimaging City Infrastructures with Slime Mould. . River Publishers

The slime mould Physarum polycephalum optimises its shape in a geometrically constrained space. We explore this property in order to reconsider how we could develop more inclusive, interspecies approaches to urban planning and infrastructure. Working...
