Brain Featured 12 Jun 2002 Image

Brain

Brain. Computer artwork of a human brain in a male wire-frame head. The brain is the nerve centre controlling bodily function and thought. It interprets nerve signals received from the rest of the body and initiates the appropriate responses. Most of the visible surface consists of the folds of the cerebral cortex, the region responsible for intelligent thought, language, conscious movement and memory. The cerebral cortex partially covers two structures at the rear base of the brain. The cerebellum (left of ear) controls balance, posture and muscular co-ordination. The rod-like brainstem (right of cerebellum) controls vital subconscious functions, including breathing and blood pressure

Fire detector researcher

Fire detector researcher. Marc Thuillard, fire detector researcher, holding a circuit board containing his sensor by flames. Thuillard has helped design a sensor which can distinguish between potentially dangerous fires and false alarms such as flashing lights and candles. The sensor measures fluctuations in heat and smoke density, and uses "fuzzy logic" to determine whether or not it is an uncontrolled fire. These sensors have been used in the AlgoRex system. Thuillard works for Cerberus, part of Siemens AG, based in Switzerland
