Fungal electronics (2021)
Journal Article
Adamatzky, A., Ayres, P., Beasley, A. E., Chiolerio, A., Dehshibi, M. M., Gandia, A., …Wösten, H. A. (2022). Fungal electronics. BioSystems, 212, Article 104588. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.biosystems.2021.104588

Fungal electronics is a family of living electronic devices made of mycelium bound composites or pure mycelium. Fungal electronic devices are capable of changing their impedance and generating spikes of electrical potential in response to external co... Read More about Fungal electronics.

Stimulating fungi Pleurotus ostreatus with hydrocortisone (2021)
Journal Article
Dehshibi, M. M., Chiolerio, A., Nikolaidou, A., Mayne, R., Gandia, A., Ashtari-Majlan, M., & Adamatzky, A. (2021). Stimulating fungi Pleurotus ostreatus with hydrocortisone. ACS Biomaterials Science and Engineering, 7(8), 3718-3726. https://doi.org/10.1021/acsbiomaterials.1c00752

Fungi cells can sense extracellular signals via reception, transduction, and response mechanisms, allowing them to communicate with their host and adapt to their environment. They feature effective regulatory protein expressions that enhance and regu... Read More about Stimulating fungi Pleurotus ostreatus with hydrocortisone.

Living wearables from slime mould and fungi (2021)
Journal Article
Adamatzky, A., Nikolaidou, A., Gandia, A., & Chiolerio, A. (2021). Living wearables from slime mould and fungi. LINKs-series, 93-98

Smart wearables, augmented with soft and liquid electronics, can display sensing, responsive and adaptive capabilities, but they cannot self-grow or self-repair. Living organisms colonising a fabric could be a viable alternative. In the present artic... Read More about Living wearables from slime mould and fungi.

Reactive fungal wearable (2021)
Journal Article
Adamatzky, A., Nikolaidou, A., Gandia, A., Chiolerio, A., & Dehshibi, M. M. (2021). Reactive fungal wearable. BioSystems, 199, Article 104304. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.biosystems.2020.104304

Smart wearables sense and process information from the user’s body and environment and report results of their analysis as electrical signals. Conventional electronic sensors and controllers are commonly, sometimes augmented by recent advances in sof... Read More about Reactive fungal wearable.
