Technology pushes sporting boundaries
Miah believes there is now a new frontier in sporting technology, driven by the convergence of nanotechnology, biotechnology, information technology and cognitive science.
All of these have profound implications for technological and medical developments generally, as well as within sport.
"It seems likely to me that sports will confront the implications of this convergence quite soon.
"We can imagine nanotechnological devices being utilised by athletes to keep them fit ... these are molecular-sized devices that could be inserted into the brain to elicit certain kinds of
