Personalised profiling to identify clinically relevant changes in tremor due to multiple sclerosis (2019)
Journal Article
Western, D. G., Neild, S. A., Jones, R., & Davies-Smith, A. (2019). Personalised profiling to identify clinically relevant changes in tremor due to multiple sclerosis. BMC Medical Informatics and Decision Making, 19, https://doi.org/10.1186/s12911-019-0881-1

Background: There is growing interest in sensor-based assessment of upper limb tremor in multiple sclerosis and other movement disorders. However, previously such assessments have not been found to offer any improvement over conventional clinical obs...

Measurement bias in activation-recovery intervals from unipolar electrograms (2015)
Journal Article
Western, D., Hanson, B., & Taggart, P. (2015). Measurement bias in activation-recovery intervals from unipolar electrograms. AJP - Heart and Circulatory Physiology, 308(4), H331-H338. https://doi.org/10.1152/ajpheart.00478.2014

The activation-recovery interval (ARI) calculated from unipolar electrograms is regularly used as a convenient surrogate measure of local cardiac action potential durations (APD). This method enables important research bridging between computational... Read More about Measurement bias in activation-recovery intervals from unipolar electrograms.
