  • Martins, Pedro; Boeckx, Cedric (Frontiers, 2014)
    There is still no categorical answer as to why humans, and no other species, have speech, or why speech is the way it is. Several purely anatomical arguments have been put forward, but they have been shown to be false, ...
  • Larrabide, Ignacio, 1978-; Aguilar, María Laura; Morales, Hernán G.; Geers, Adrianus Johannes; Kulcsár, Zsolt; Rüfenacht, Daniel; Frangi Caregnato, Alejandro (American Society of Neuroradiology, 2013)
    Background and purpose: Effects of blood flow modification by flow diverters are observed to lead often to aneurysm thrombosis and reverse remodeling. For this process, to further understand the potential roles of ...
  • Lange, Matthias; Di Marco, LY; Lekadir, Karim, 1977-; Lassila, Toni; Frangi Caregnato, Alejandro (Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2016)
    False tendons (FTs) are fibrous or fibromuscular bands that can be found in both the normal and abnormal human heart in various anatomical forms depending on their attachment points, tissue types, and geometrical properties. ...
  • Lallée, Stéphane; Verschure, Paul F. M. J. (MDPI, 2015)
    Robotic agents are spreading, incarnated as embodied entities, exploring the tangible world and interacting with us, or as virtual agents crawling over the web, parsing and generating data. In both cases, they require: (i) ...
  • Kjer, Hans Martin; Fagertun, Jens; Vera, Sergio; Gil, Debora; González Ballester, Miguel Ángel, 1973-; Paulsen, Rasmus (Elsevier, 2016)
    Better understanding of the anatomical variability of the human cochlear is important for the design and function of Cochlear Implants. Proper non-rigid alignment of high-resolution cochlear μCT data is a challenge for the ...
  • Kim, Hansung; Evans, Alun; Blat, Josep; Hilton, Adrian (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2018)
    Recent developments of video and sensing technology have led to large volumes of digital media data. Current media production relies on videos from the principal camera together with a wide variety of heterogeneous source ...
  • Cabrero Daniel, Beatriz; Marques, Ricardo; Hoyet, Ludovic; Pettré, Julien; Blat, Josep (Wiley, 2022)
    Simulating crowds requires controlling a very large number of trajectories of characters and is usually performed using crowd steering algorithms. The question of choosing the right algorithm with the right parameter values ...
  • Marichal Baráibar, Sebastián; Rosales, Andrea; González Perilli, Fernando; Pires, Ana Cristina; Blat, Josep (Taylor & Francis, 2023)
    Physical manipulatives, such as rods or tiles, are widely used for mathematics learning, as they support embodied cognition, enable the execution of epistemic actions, and foster conceptual metaphors. Counting them, children ...
  • Becerra Fajardo, Laura; Minguillon, Jesus; Krob, Marc Oliver; Rodrigues, Camila; González Sánchez, Miguel; Megía-García, Álvaro; Redondo Galán, Carolina; Gutiérrez Henares, Francisco; Comerma-Montells, Albert; Del-Alma, Antonio J.; Gil-Agudo, Ángel; Grandas, Francisco; Schneider-Ickert, Andreas; Barroso, Filipe O.; Ivorra Cano, Antoni, 1974- (BioMed Central, 2024)
    Background: Recently we reported the design and evaluation of floating semi-implantable devices that receive power from and bidirectionally communicate with an external system using coupling by volume conduction. The ...
  • Katina, Stanislav; McNeil, Kathryn; Ayoub, Ashraf; Guilfoyle, Brendan; Khambay, Balvinder; Siebert, Paul; Sukno, Federico Mateo; Rojas, Mario A.; Vittert, Liberty; Waddington, John L.; Whelan, Paul F.; Bowman, Adrian W. (Wiley, 2016)
    The analysis of shape is a key part of anatomical research and in the large majority of cases landmarks provide a standard starting point. However, while the technology of image capture has developed rapidly and in particular ...
  • Karim, Rashed; Karim, Rashed; Albà, Xènia; González Ballester, Miguel Ángel, 1973-; Rhode, Kawal (Elsevier, 2016)
    Studies have demonstrated the feasibility of late Gadolinium enhancement (LGE) cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging for guiding the management of patients with sequelae to myocardial infarction, such as ventricular ...
  • Silva Pereira, Silvana; Ekin Özer, Ege; Sebastián Gallés Núria (Oxford University Press, 2024)
    The superior temporal and the Heschl’s gyri of the human brain play a fundamental role in speech processing. Neurons synchronize their activity to the amplitude envelope of the speech signal to extract acoustic and linguistic ...
  • Font Segura, Josep; Wang, Xiaodong (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010)
    We consider the spectrum sensing problem in cognitive radio networks. We offer a framework for optimal joint detection and parameter estimation when the secondary users have only a small number of signal samples. We discuss ...
  • Irizar, Haritz; Muñoz-Culla, Maider; Sepúlveda, Lucia; Sáenz-Cuesta, Matías; Prada, Álvaro; Castillo-Triviño, Tamara; Zamora-López, Gorka; López de Munain, Adolfo; Olascoaga, Javier; Otaegui, David (Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2014)
    Background. Although the most common clinical presentation of multiple sclerosis (MS) is the so called Relapsing-Remitting MS (RRMS), the molecular mechanisms responsible for its progression are currently unknown. To tackle ...
  • Hindriks, Rikkert; Meijer, Hil G. E.; van Gils, Stephan A.; van Putten, Michel J. A. M. (Frontiers, 2013)
    The EEG of patients in non-convulsive status epilepticus (NCSE) often displays delta oscillations or generalized spike-wave discharges. In some patients, these delta oscillations coexist with intermittent epileptic spikes. ...
  • Herreros, Ivan; Giovannucci, Andrea; Taub, Aryeh H.; Hogri, Roni; Magal, Ari; Bamford, Sim; Prueckl, Robert; Verschure, Paul F. M. J. (Frontiers, 2014)
    Emulating the input–output functions performed by a brain structure opens the possibility for developing neuroprosthetic systems that replace damaged neuronal circuits. Here, we demonstrate the feasibility of this approach ...
  • Martí Fuster, Berta; Esteban, Oscar; Planes, Xavier; Aguiar, Pablo; Crespo, Cristina; Falcon, Carles; Wollny, Gert; Rubí Sureda, Sebastià; Setoain, Xavier; Frangi Caregnato, Alejandro; Ledesma-Carbayo, María J.; Santos, Andrés; Pavía Segura, Javier; Ros, Domènec (Springer, 2013)
    Subtraction of Ictal SPECT Co-registered to MRI (SISCOM) is an imaging technique used to localize the epileptogenic focus in patients with intractable partial epilepsy. The aim of this study was to determine the accuracy ...
  • Malekshahi, Rahim; Seth, Anil; Papanikolaou, Amalia; Mathews, Zenon; Birbaumer, Niels; Verschure, Paul F. M. J.; Caria, Andrea (Nature Research, 2016)
    Emerging evidence indicates that prediction, instantiated at different perceptual levels, facilitate visual processing and enable prompt and appropriate reactions. Until now, the mechanisms underlying the effect of predictive ...
  • Gaudron, Daniel; Liu, Dan; Scholz, Friederike; Hu, Kai; Florescum, Christiane; Herrmann, Sebastian; Bijnens, Bart; Ertl, Georg; Störk, Stefan; Weidemann, Frank (Elsevier, 2016)
