  • Schmitz, Judith, 1984-; Bartoli, Eleonora; Maffongelli, Laura; Fadiga, Luciano; Sebastián Gallés, Núria; D'Ausilio, Alessandro (Elsevier, 2018)
    Listening to speech has been shown to activate motor regions, as measured by corticobulbar excitability. In this experiment, we explored if motor regions are also recruited during listening to non-native speech, for which ...

    Understanding the human inner ear anatomy and its internal structures is paramount to advance hearing implant technology. While the emergence of imaging devices allowed researchers to improve understanding of intracochlear ...
  • Glomb, Katharina; Ponce-Alvarez, Adrián; Gilson, Matthieu; Ritter, Petra; Deco, Gustavo (Elsevier, 2017)
    It is well-established that patterns of functional connectivity (FC) - measures of correlated activity between pairs of voxels or regions observed in the human brain using neuroimaging - are robustly expressed in spontaneous ...

    Terminological databases constitute a fundamental source of information in the medical domain. They are used daily both by practitioners in the area, as well as in academia. Several resources of this kind are available, ...
  • Álvarez de la Granja, María; Gómez Clemente, Xosé María; Gómez Guinovart, Xavier (De Gruyter, 2016)
    This study describes the introduction of verbal idioms in the Galician language version (Galnet) of the semantic network WordNet; a network that does not traditionally include many phraseological units. To enhance Galnet, ...
  • Agerri, Rodrigo; Rigau Claramunt, German (Elsevier, 2016)
    We present a multilingual Named Entity Recognition approach based on a robust and general set of features across languages and datasets. Our system combines shallow local information with clustering semi-supervised features ...
  • Castellví, Quim; Mercadal Cavaller, Borja; Moll, Xavier; Fondevila, Dolors; Andaluz, Anna; Ivorra Cano, Antoni, 1974- (Institute of Physics (IOP), 2017)
    Electroporation based treatments typically consist in applying high voltage dc pulses. As an undesired side effect, these dc pulses cause electrical stimulation of excitable tissues such as motor nerves. In the present in ...
  • Evans, Alun Thomas; Agenjo, Javier; Blat, Josep (2017)
    We present an end-to-end pipeline for the export of 3D scenes from content creaton tools to a real-tme rendering engine in an embeddable web-page, including a novel system for compression/decompression of textured polygonal ...
  • Wanner, Leo; André, Elisabeth; Blat, Josep; Dasioupoulou, Stamatia; Farrús, Mireia; Fraga, Thiago; Kamateri, Eleni; Lingenfelserc, Florian; Llorach, Gerard; Martínez, Oriol; Meditskose, Georgios; Mille, Simon; Minker, Wolfgang; Pragst, Louisa; Schiller, Dominik; Stam, Andries; Stellingwerff, Ludo; Sukno, Federico M.; Vieru, Bianca; Vrochidis, Stefanos (Elsevier, 2017)
    We present work in progress on an intelligent embodied conversation agent that is supposed to act as a social companion with linguistic and emotional competence in the context of basic and health care. The core of the agent ...
  • Melero Merino, Javier; Hernández Leo, Davinia; Manatunga, Kalpani (Elsevier, 2015)
    Within the field of Game-based Learning (GBL) location-based games are based on pervasive and mobile learning to allow the creation of in situ learning activities considering gamification mechanisms. In these learning ...
  • Villasclaras-Fernández, Eloy D.; Hernández-Gonzalo, Julio A.; Hernández Leo, Davinia; Asensio-Pérez, Juan I.; Dimitriadis, Yannis; Martínez-Monés, Alejandra (International Forum of Educational Technology & Society, 2009)
    Current research work in e-learning and more specifically in the field of CSCL (Computer Supported Collaborative Learning) deals with design of collaborative activities, according to computer-interpretable specifications, ...
  • Navarrete Terrassa, Antonio, 1973-; Santos Rodríguez, Patrícia; Hernández Leo, Davinia; Blat, Josep (International Forum of Educational Technology & Society, 2011)
    Test-based e-Assessment approaches are mostly focused on the assessment of knowledge and not on that of other skills, which could be supported by multimedia interactive services. This paper presents the QTIMaps model, ...
  • Hernández Leo, Davinia; Moreno, Pau; Chacón Pérez, Jonathan, 1986-; Blat, Josep (Elsevier, 2014)
    Some educational innovation initiatives require practitioners to team up on the design of new learning activities. However, existing learning design tooling does not integrally support their tasks. Some tools enable authoring ...
  • Deco, Gustavo; Tagliazucchi, Enzo; Laufs, Helmut; Sanjuán, Ana; Kringelbach, Morten L. (Society for Neuroscience, 2017)
    A precise definition of a brain state has proven elusive. Here, we introduce the novel local-global concept of intrinsic ignition characterizing the dynamical complexity of different brain states. Naturally occurring ...
  • González-Suárez, Ana; Herranz, David; Berjano, Enrique J.; Rubio-Guivernau, Jose L.; Margallo-Balbás, Eduardo (Wiley, 2017)
