Research Interests

Dr Jelinek is engaged in developing a neurofeedback laboratory that is investigating neurogognitive engineering solutions for physical and mental health. Associated research themes include diabetes and comorbidities such as diabetic retinopathy, cognitive decline, cardiovascular disease, postural stability utilising biosignal processing, image analysis and clinical biochemistry methodology.
Projects include:

  • Effect of dual tasking in diabetes, obesity and following stroke on postural stability
  • Heart-Brain interaction in health and disease: Does the heart rule the brain or the brain rule the heart
  • Biofeedback and neurofeedback for anxiety, depression, PTSD and cognitive decline: Comparison to conventional treatment options.
  • Development of a multisensor system for dynamic, real-time neurofeedback
