  • Gómez Cañón, Juan Sebastián; Cano, Estefanía; Herrera Boyer, Perfecto, 1964-; Gómez Gutiérrez, Emilia, 1975- (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2021)
    In this study, we address emotion recognition using unsupervised feature learning from speech data, and test its transferability to music. Our approach is to pre-train models using speech in English and Mandarin, and then ...

    The Tigray region in Ethiopia witnessed the rise and fall of the Pre-Aksumite and Aksumite communities between the mid 2nd millennium BCE and the late 1st millennium CE. Despite the importance of these entities in recent ...
  • Østergaard-Nielsen, Eva; Ciornei, Irina; Lafleur, Jean-Michel (Cambridge University Press, 2019)
    Policies allowing enfranchisement of non-resident citizens (emigrants and their descendants) are now implemented in the majority of states worldwide. A growing number of case studies show that the extension of voting rights ...

    Background: Health inequalities have been consistently reported across and within European countries and continue to pose major challenges to policy-making. The development of scenarios regarding what could affect population ...
  • Bubeck, Johannes; Maddaloni, Angela; Peydró, José-Luis (Wiley, 2020)
    We show that negative monetary policy rates induce systemic banks to reach‐for‐yield. For identification, we exploit the introduction of negative deposit rates by the European Central Bank in June 2014 and a novel securities ...

  • Tauste Campo, Adrià; Vázquez, Yuriria; Álvarez, Manuel; Zainos, Antonio; Rossi-Pool, Román; Deco, Gustavo; Romo, Ranulfo (National Academy of Sciences, 2019)
    The direction of functional information flow in the sensory thalamocortical circuit may play a role in stimulus perception, but, surprisingly, this process is poorly understood. We addressed this problem by evaluating a ...
  • Trujillo Guillén, Macarena; Prakash, Punit; Faridi, Pegah; Radosevic, Aleksandar; Curto, Sergio; Burdío Pinilla, Fernando; Berjano, Enrique J. (Taylor & Francis, 2020)
    Purpose: To compare the size of the coagulation (CZ) and periablational (PZ) zones created with two commercially available devices in clinical use for radiofrequency (RFA) and microwave ablation (MWA), respectively. Methods: ...
  • Gallego Dobón, Aina; Buscha, Franz; Sturgis, Patrick; Oberski, Daniel (Cambridge University Press, 2016)
    Contextual theories of political behaviour assert that the contexts in which people live influence their political beliefs and vote choices. Most studies, however, fail to distinguish contextual influence from self-selection ...
  • Gallego Dobón, Aina (Oxford University Press, 2016)
    This article uses a subtle experimental treatment to examine how perceptions of income inequality affect generalized trust and the willingness to cooperate with others. It hypothesizes that inequality reduces prosocial ...
