  • Girardin, Fabien; Vaccari, Andrea; Gerber, Alexander; Biderman, Assaf; Ratti, Carlo (Joint Research Centre of the European Commission, 2009)
    In the past, sensors networks in cities have been limited to fixed sensors, embedded in particular locations, under centralised control. Today, new applications can leverage wireless devices and use them as sensors to ...
  • Santos Rodríguez, Patrícia; Pérez Sanagustín, Maria del Mar; Hernández Leo, Davinia; Blat, Josep (Elsevier, 2011)
    Test-based assessment tools are mostly focused on the use of computers. However, advanced Information and Communication Technologies, such as handheld devices, opens up the possibilities of creating new assessment scenarios, ...
  • Guger, Christoph; Gener, Thomas; Pennartz, Cyriel; Brotons-Mas, Jorge; Edlinger, Günter; Bermúdez i Badia, S.; Verschure, Paul F. M. J.; Schaffelhofer, Stefan; Sanchez-Vives, Maria V (Frontiers Media, 2011)
    Brain–computer interfaces (BCI) are using the electroencephalogram, the electrocorticogram and trains of action potentials as inputs to analyze brain activity for communication purposes and/or the control of external ...
  • Sadat Schaffai, Jasmin, 1982-; Martin, Clara D.; Costa Martínez, Albert, 1970-; Alario, F.-Xavier (François -Xavier) (Elsevier, 2014)
    A crucial step for understanding how lexical knowledge is represented is to describe the relative similarity of lexical items, and how it influences language processing. Previous studies of the effects of form similarity ...
  • Ledberg, Anders; Montagnini, Anna; Coppola, Richard; Bressler, Sreven L. (Public Library of Science, 2012)
    Sensory responses of the brain are known to be highly variable, but the origin and functional relevance of this variability have long remained enigmatic. Using the variable foreperiod of a visual discrimination task to ...
  • Chicharro Raventós, Daniel; Andrzejak, Ralph Gregor (American Physical Society, 2009)
    To detect directional couplings from time series various measures based on distances in reconstructed state spaces were introduced. These measures can, however, be biased by asymmetries in the dynamics' structure, noise ...
  • Ivorra Cano, Antoni, 1974- (Public Library of Science, 2011)
    Miniaturization of active implantable medical devices is currently compromised by the available means for electrically powering them. Most common energy supply techniques for implants – batteries and inductive couplers – ...
  • Deco, Gustavo; Ponce-Alvarez, Adrián; Mantini, Dante; Romani, Gian Luca; Hagmann, Patric; Corbetta, Maurizzio (Society for Neuroscience, 2013)
    Brain fluctuations at rest are not random but are structured in spatial patterns of correlated activity across different brain areas. The question of how resting-state functional connectivity (FC) emerges from the brain’s ...
  • Ponce-Alvarez, Adrián; Deco, Gustavo; Hagmann, Patric; Romani, Gian Luca; Mantini, Dante; Corbetta, Maurizzio (Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2015)
    Spatial patterns of coherent activity across different brain areas have been identified during the resting-state fluctuations of the brain. However, recent studies indicate that resting-state activity is not stationary, ...
  • Hernández Leo, Davinia; Asensio-Pérez, Juan I.; Dimitriadis, Yannis; Bote-Lorenzo, Miguel L.; Jorrín-Abellán, Iván M.; Villasclaras-Fernández, Eloy D. (ACTA Press, 2005)
    Designs of CSCL (Computer Supported Collaborative Learning) activities should be flexible, effective and customizable to particular learning situations. On the other hand, structured designs aim to create favourable ...
  • Ngo, Mary Kim; Cadieux, Michelle L.; Sinnet, Scott; Soto-Faraco, Salvador, 1970-; Spence, Charles (Springer, 2011)
    Many researchers have taken the Colavita effect to represent a paradigm case of visual dominance. Broadly defined, the effect occurs when people fail to respond to an auditory target if they also have to respond to a visual ...
  • Senden, Mario; Deco, Gustavo; Reus, Marcel A. de; Goebel, Rainer; Heuvel, Martijn van den (Elsevier, 2014)
    Brain function relies on the flexible integration of a diverse set of segregated cortical modules, with the structural connectivity of the brain being a fundamentally important factor in shaping the brain‟s functional ...
  • Moreno, Verónica; Hernández Leo, Davinia (Ediciones Universidad de Salamanca, 2015)
    The role of Bachelor’s Final Projects (BFP) in Engineering Education is critical since it offers the opportunity for students to integrate and employ specific and transversal competences they have developed along the ...
  • Alsius, Agnès; Soto-Faraco, Salvador, 1970- (Springer, 2011)
    A critical question in multisensory processing is how the constant information flow that arrives to our different senses is organized in coherent representations. Some authors claim that pre-attentive detection of inter-sensory ...
  • Ikumi, Nara; Soto-Faraco, Salvador, 1970- (Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2014)
    Temporal recalibration of cross-modal synchrony has been proposed as a mechanism to compensate for timing differences between sensory modalities. However, far from the rich complexity of everyday life sensory environments, ...
  • Hernández Leo, Davinia; Louys, Amélie; Schoonenboom, Judith; Pérez Sanagustín, Maria del Mar; Lemmers, Ruud (International Forum of Educational Technology & Society, 2009)
    This paper describes a pilot study centred on the technology-enhanced self-development of competences in lifelong learning education carried out in the challenging context of the Association of Participants Àgora. The pilot ...
  • Angelosante, Daniele; Biglieri, Ezio; Lops, Marco (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2009)
    Wireless “MIMO” systems, employing multiple transmit and receive antennas, promise a significant increase of channel capacity, while orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) is attracting a good deal of attention ...
  • Amiri Nezhad, Maryam; Guerrero Zapata, Manel; Bellalta, Boris; Cerdà Alabern, Llorenç (SpringerOpen, 2014)
    In the context of wireless network simulation, many simulators are capable of evaluating the performance of single-channel network protocols, but they need many modifications to be able to simulate multi-radio multi-channel ...
  • Abolafia, Juan M.; Martínez-García, Marina; Deco, Gustavo; Sanchez-Vives, Maria V (Frontiers Media, 2011)
    In this study, we recorded single unit activity from rat auditory cortex while the animals performed an interval-discrimination task. The animals had to decide whether two auditory stimuli were separated by either 150 or ...
  • Overvliet, Krista E.; Azañón Gracia, Elena; Soto-Faraco, Salvador, 1970- (Elsevier, 2011)
    Remapping tactile events from skin to external space is an essential process for human behaviour. It allows us to refer tactile sensations to their actual externally based location, by combining anatomically based somatosensory ...
