    BACKGROUND: We longitudinally assessed Down syndrome individuals at the age of risk of developing dementia to measure changes in brain anatomy and their relationship to cognitive impairment progression. METHODS: Forty-two ...
  • Principe, Alessandro; Ley Nacher, Miguel; Conesa Bertran, Gerardo; Rocamora Zúñiga, Rodrigo Alberto (Elsevier, 2019)
    Several models have been proposed to explain brain regional and interregional communication, the majority of them using methods that tap the frequency domain, like spectral coherence. Considering brain interareal communication ...
  • Trebaul, Lena; Rocamora Zúñiga, Rodrigo Alberto; David, Olivier (Elsevier, 2018)
    In patients with pharmaco-resistant focal epilepsies investigated with intracranial electroencephalography (iEEG), direct electrical stimulations of a cortical region induce cortico-cortical evoked potentials (CCEP) in ...
  • Portolés, José; Pérez-Saez, María José; Pascual Santos, Julio (Elsevier, 2019)
    INTRODUCTION: Many European countries have transplant programmes with controlled donors after cardiac death (cDCD). Twenty-two centres are part of GEODAS group. We analysed clinical results from a nephrological perspective. ...
