I want to move it, move it: framing and enabling children's active play using novel technology

We're interested in exploring how tangible, embodied and embedded interactions (TEIs) can be used to facilitate active play in young children (age 3-5 years old). In this project you’ll explore how existing technologies are used to provide children with opportunities for active play, be involved in the design and development of new TEIs, and evaluate how these TEIs might facilitate sustained engagement with active play.This student project is part of a larger research project at QUT, which means you will …

Feasibility of mapping individual electroencephalography to neuroanatomical sources across children and adolescents

Aims and MethodologyBackgroundSource reconstruction of electroencephalography (EEG) in adults has become a widely used technique to derive estimated electrophysiological signal representations occurring at specific anatomical locations. Yet there remains a dearth of source-based EEG techniques in paediatric populations which feasibly and accurately capture the same representations. The availability of a streamlined source based EEG framework would provide an essential platform for neuroscientists in the paediatric research space to analyse their EEG data with respect to neuroanatomy.AimTo assess the feasibility of …

Retrospective analysis of treatment outcomes from a university-based myopia control clinic

The primary aim of this project is to retrospectively examine patient response to different myopia control treatments by a number of ocular biometrics such as refractive error, axial length and choroidal thickness. A secondary aim of this case review is to gain an understanding of children’s attitudes and ocular characteristics which may influence selection of myopia control treatments within a specialty university-based myopia control centre, as well as treatment drop-out rates and any adverse events experienced due to treatment.A similar …

Food literacy and children

The term food literacy has been empirically for adults, but not for children. It is likely that the definition would differ for children (including adolescents). Possible research projects in this area include but are not limited to:investigating children's role in feeding themselves, in particular the variables that impact on this; and diet quality and food choice pathways that children use, the impact of economic disadvantage, culture, gender, age, geographydefining and conceptualising food literacy for childrenconceptualising food literacy by those developing …

Optimising outcomes for children and adolescents diagnosed with cancer

Each year in Australia, around 1200 children and adolescents are diagnosed with cancer and while most (84%) will achieve 5-year disease free survival, all will suffer significant distress from symptoms associated with cancer and treatment.High symptom burdens can lead to numerous negative outcomes that persist for many years beyond cancer treatment. These include disruptions normal development, schooling, relationships, careers, and living an independent life. This is concerning, because young people have a long time to live with these negative consequences, …

The impacts of retailers' collectable free-gifts on children

Have you collected any? From the McDonalds' 1998 Vintage to the Coles 2018 Little Shop and the Woolworth 2019 Lion King Ooshies, retailers have been trying many collectable premium/gift promotions, and most of them are free to get with a certain amount of consumption in the retailer's store.Generally speaking, premium promotion is an important marketing promotion strategy which increases the retailers' revenue and brand reputation (Foubert et al. 2008; Septianto et al. 2020). For example, Wang, Japutra and Molinillo (2020) …

PneuMatters: Preventing early-onset pneumonia in high-risk children through maternal immunisation - a study in Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander, Māori, or Pacific Islander infants

The PneuMatters study is evaluating the efficacy of a pneumococcal vaccine in preventing pneumonia in the first 12 months of life in high-risk infants whose mothers received the vaccine while pregnant. The study is being conducted in Darwin, South-East Queensland and Malaysia. Participants are recruited in antenatal clinics and are followed until the baby turns 12 months of age.Australian participants must be pregnant with infants who will be identified as either Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander, Māori, or Pacific Islander.
