  • Díaz, Begoña; Mitterer, Holger; Broersm, Mirjam; Escera, Carles; Sebastián Gallés, Núria (Cambridge University Press, 2015)
    People differ in their ability to perceive second language (L2) sounds. In early bilinguals the variability in learning L2 phonemes stems from speech-specific capabilities (Díaz, Baus, Escera, Costa & Sebastián-Gallés, ...
  • Mochol, Gabriela; Wójcik, Daniel K.; Wypych, Marek; Wróbel, Andrzej; Waleszczyk, Wioletta J. (Society for Neuroscience, 2010)
    Visually responding neurons in the superficial, retinorecipient layers of the cat superior colliculus receive input from two primarily parallel information processing channels, Y and W, which is reflected in their velocity ...
  • Mathews, Zenon; Cetnarski, Ryszard; Verschure, Paul F. M. J. (Frontiers Media, 2015)
    Prediction plays a key role in control of attention but it is not clear which aspects of prediction are most prominent in conscious experience. An evolving view on the brain is that it can be seen as a prediction machine ...
  • Brunellière, Angèle; Sánchez García, Carolina, 1984-; Ikumi Montserrat, Nara, 1986-; Soto-Faraco, Salvador, 1970- (Elsevier, 2013)
    Audiovisual speech perception has been frequently studied considering phoneme, syllable and word processing levels. Here, we examined the constraints that visual speech information might exert during the recognition of ...
  • Pérez-Bellido, Alexis; Ernst, Marc O.; Soto-Faraco, Salvador, 1970-; López-Moliner, Joan (Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO), 2015)
    Recent studies have proposed that some cross-modal illusions might be expressed in what were previously thought of as sensory-specific brain areas. Therefore, one interesting question is whether auditory-driven visual ...
  • Deneux, Thomas; Masquelier, Timothée; Bermudez, Maria A.; Masson, Guillaume S.; Deco, Gustavo; Vanzetta, Ivo (Society of Photo Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE), 2017)
    Increasing evidence suggests that sensory stimulation not only changes the level of cortical activity with respect to baseline but also its structure. Despite having been reported in a multitude of conditions and preparations ...
  • Farrús, Mireia (ACM Association for Computer Machinery, 2018)
    We, humans, are able to identify other people even in voice disguise conditions. However, we are not immune to all voice changes when trying to identifying people from voice. Likewise, automatic speaker recognition systems ...
  • Oubel, E.; Cebral, J.R.; De Craene, Mathieu; Blanc, R.; Blasco, Jordi; Macho, Juan M.; Putman, C.M.; Frangi Caregnato, Alejandro (Institute of Physics (IOP), 2010)
    The quantification of wall motion in cerebral aneurysms is becoming important owing to its potential connection to rupture, and as a way to incorporate the effects of vascular compliance in computational fluid dynamics ...
  • Birulés-Muntané, Joan; Soto-Faraco, Salvador, 1970- (Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2016)
    Watching English-spoken films with subtitles is becoming increasingly popular throughout the world. One reason for this trend is the assumption that perceptual learning of the sounds of a foreign language, English, will ...
  • Deco, Gustavo; Scarano, Leandro; Soto-Faraco, Salvador, 1970- (Society for Neuroscience, 2007)
    Recent single-cell studies in monkeys (Romo et al., 2004) show that the activity of neurons in the ventral premotor cortex covaries with the animal's decisions in a perceptual comparison task regarding the frequency of ...
  • Arandía Romero, Iñigo; Nogueira Mañas, Ramon; Mochol, Gabriela; Moreno Bote, Rubén (Elsevier, 2017)
    Nowadays, it is possible to record the activity of hundreds of cells at the same time in behaving animals. However, these data are often treated and analyzed as if they consisted of many independently recorded neurons. How ...
  • Chicharro Raventós, Daniel; Kreuz, Thomas; Andrzejak, Ralph Gregor (Elsevier, 2011)
    Time scale parametric spike train distances like the Victor and the van Rossum distances/nare often applied to study the neural code based on neural stimuli discrimination./nDifferent neural coding hypotheses, such as rate ...
  • Iacozza, Sara; Costa, Albert, 1970-; Duñabeitia, Jon Andoni (Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2017)
    Foreign languages are often learned in emotionally neutral academic environments which differ greatly from the familiar context where native languages are acquired. This difference in learning contexts has been argued to ...
  • Andrews, Jeffrey G.; Buzzi, Stefano; Choi, Wan; Hanly, Stephen; Lozano Solsona, Angel; Soong, Anthony C.K.; Zhang, Jianzhong Charlie (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014)
    What will 5G be? What it will not be is an incremental/nadvance on 4G. The previous four generations of/ncellular technology have each been a major paradigm shift/nthat has broken backwards compatibility. And indeed, 5G ...
  • Hazan, Amaury; Marxer Piñón, Ricard; Brossier, Paul; Purwins, Hendrick; Herrera Boyer, Perfecto, 1964-; Serra, Xavier (Taylor & Francis (Routledge), 2009)
    A causal system to represent a stream of music into musical events, and to generate further expected events, is presented. Starting from an auditory front-end that extracts low-level (i.e. MFCC) and mid-level features such ...
  • Baus, Cristina; Strijkers, Kristof; Costa, Albert, 1970- (Frontiers Media, 2013)
    The aim of the present study was to explore the central (e.g., lexical processing) and peripheral processes (motor preparation and execution) underlying word production during typewriting. To do so, we tested non-professional ...
  • Calabria, Marco; Hernández Pardo, Mireia; Martin, Clara D.; Costa, Albert, 1970- (Frontiers Media, 2011)
    Several studies have documented the advantage of bilingualism with respect to the development of the executive control (EC) system. Two effects of bilingualism have been described in conflict resolution tasks: (a) bilinguals ...
  • Chicharro Raventós, Daniel; Ledberg, Anders (Public Library of Science, 2012)
    Biological systems often consist of multiple interacting subsystems, the brain being a prominent example. To understand/nthe functions of such systems it is important to analyze if and how the subsystems interact and to ...
  • Gonzalez-Tendero, Anna; Zhang, Chong; Balicevic, Vedrana; Cárdenes, Rubén; Loncaric, Sven; Butakoff, Constantine; Paun, Bruno; Bonnin, Anne; Garcia Canadilla, Patricia; Muñoz-Moreno, Emma; Gratacós Solsona, Eduard; Crispi Brillas, Fàtima; Bijnens, Bart (Oxford University Press, 2017)
    While individual cardiac myocytes only have a limited ability to shorten, the heart efficiently pumps a large volume-fraction thanks to a cell organization in a complex 3D fibre structure. Subclinical subtle cardiac ...
  • Ponce-Alvarez, Adrián; Jouary, Adrien; Privat, Martin; Deco, Gustavo; Sumbre, Germán (Elsevier, 2018)
    Previous studies suggest that the brain operates at a critical point in which phases of order and disorder coexist, producing emergent patterned dynamics at all scales and optimizing several brain functions. Here, we ...
