Toxicity and Applications of Internalised Magnetite Nanoparticles Within Live Paramecium caudatum Cells (2018)
Journal Article

© 2017, The Author(s). The nanotechnology revolution has allowed us to speculate on the possibility of hybridising nanoscale materials with live substrates, yet significant doubt still remains pertaining to the effects of nanomaterials on biological...

On modulating the Physarum polycephalum plasmodium's electrical resistance, resting membrane potential and capacitance by application of nanoparticles and nanostructures (2016)
Journal Article

© 2016 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved. Physarum polycephalum is a model organism used in the creation of hybrid artificial-biological devices. Among its demonstrated uses in biocomputing it is able to grow self healing 'wires' which can be used to...

On coupled oscillator dynamics and incident behaviour patterns in slime mould Physarum polycephalum: emergence of wave packets, global streaming clock frequencies and anticipation of periodic stimuli (2016)
Journal Article

© 2016 Informa UK Limited, trading as Taylor & Francis Group. Slime mould Physarum polycephalum is a single cell which physically oscillates via contraction of actomyosin in order to achieve motility. Several of its apparently ‘intelligent’ behavio...

Living wires — Effects of size and coating of gold nanoparticles in altering the electrical properties of Physarum polycephalum and lettuce seedlings (2016)
Journal Article

The manipulation of biological substrates is becoming more popular route toward generating novel computing devices. Physarum polycephalum is used as a model organism in biocomputingbecause it can create "wires" for use in hybrid circuits; programmab...

The Physarum polycephalum actin network: Formalisation, topology and morphological correlates with computational ability (2014)
Presentation / Conference Contribution

The plasmodial form of slime mould Physarum polycephalum is a macroscopic acellular organism that is capable of apparently intelligent behaviour, yet it lacks any features usually associated with intelligence. In this investigation, we study the morp... Read More about The Physarum polycephalum actin network: Formalisation, topology and morphological correlates with computational ability.

On the internalisation, intraplasmodial carriage and excretion of metallic nanoparticles in the slime mould, Physarum polycephalum (2011)
Journal Article

The plasmodium of Physarum polycephalum is a large single cell visible with the naked eye. When inoculated on a substrate with attractants and repellents the plasmodium develops optimal networks of protoplasmic tubes which span sites of attractants (...
