  • 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 ...
  • Ingole, Vijendra; Marí Dell'Olmo, Marc, 1978-; Deluca, Anna; Quijal, Marcos; Borrell i Thió, Carme; Rodríguez Sanz, Maica, 1974-; Achebak, Hicham; Lauwaet, Dirk; Gilabert, Joan; Murage, Peninah; Hajat, Shakoor; Basagaña Flores, Xavier; Ballester, Joan (MDPI, 2020)
    Numerous studies have demonstrated the relationship between summer temperatures and increased heat-related deaths. Epidemiological analyses of the health effects of climate exposures usually rely on observations from the ...

    Objective: To analyse socioeconomic inequalities in all-cause mortality among men and women in nine European urban areas during the recent economic crisis, and to compare the results to those from two periods before the ...
  • Tian, Tian V.; Di Stefano, Bruno, 1984-; Stik, Grégoire; Vila-Casadesús, Maria; Sardina, Jose Luis; Vidal Ocabo, Enrique; Dasti, Alessandro, 1988-; Segura-Morales, Carolina; de Andrés-Aguayo, Luisa; Gómez, Antonio; Goldmann, Johanna; Jaenisch, Rudolf; Graf, T. (Thomas) (Nature Research, 2019)
    How pluripotent stem cells differentiate into the main germ layers is a key question of developmental biology. Here, we show that the chromatin-related factor Whsc1 (also known as Nsd2 and MMSET) has a dual role in ...
  • Gómez Villa, Alexander; Martín, Adrian; Vazquez-Corral, Javier; Bertalmío, Marcelo; Malo, Jesús (Elsevier, 2020)
    The study of visual illusions has proven to be a very useful approach in vision science. In this work we start by showing that, while convolutional neural networks (CNNs) trained for low-level visual tasks in natural ...
  • Ramírez, Rafael,1966-; Blanco, Angel David (ACM Association for Computer Machinery, 2017)
    We present a study of the effects of feedback technologies on the learning process of novice violin students. Twenty-one subjects participated in our experiment, divided into two groups: Beginners (participants with no ...
  • Pérez-Lluch, Sílvia; Klein, Cecilia C.; Breschi, Alessandra, 1988-; Ruiz-Romero, Marina; Abad, Amaya; Palumbo, Emilio; Bekish, Lyazzat; Arnan Ros, Carme; Guigó Serra, Roderic (Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2020)
    Natural Antisense Transcripts (NATs) are long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) that overlap coding genes in the opposite strand. NATs roles have been related to gene regulation through different mechanisms, including post-transcriptional ...
  • Kane, David; Bertalmío, Marcelo (Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO), 2019)
    In 1986, Paul Whittle investigated the ability to discriminate between the luminance of two small patches viewed upon a uniform background. In 1992, Paul Whittle asked subjects to manipulate the luminance of a number of ...
  • Papatzikis, Efthymios; Zeba, Fathima; Särkämö, Teppo; Ramírez, Rafael,1966-; Grau-Sánchez, Jennifer; Tervaniemi, Mari; Loewy, Joanne (Frontiers, 2020)
    The COVID-19 disease and the systemic responses to it has impacted lives, routines and procedures at an unprecedented level. While medical care and emergency response present immediate needs, the implications of this ...
  • Dalmazzo, David; Waddell, George; Ramírez, Rafael,1966- (Frontiers, 2021)
    Repetitive practice is one of the most important factors in improving the performance of motor skills. This paper focuses on the analysis and classification of forearm gestures in the context of violin playing. We recorded ...
  • Badia Villanueva, Miriam; Defaus, Sira; Foj, Ruben; Andreu Martínez, David; Oliva Miguel, Baldomero; Sierra, Angels; Fernández Fuentes, Narcís (MDPI, 2021)
    The tumour necrosis factor-like weak inducer of apoptosis (TWEAK) is a member of the tumour necrosis factor ligand family and has been shown to be overexpressed in tumoral cells together with the fibroblast growth ...
  • Krebs, Alice; Nyffeler, Johanna; Karreman, Christiaan; Schmidt, Béla Z.; Kappenberg, Franziska; Mellert, Jan; Pallocca, Giorgia; Pastor Maeso, Manuel; Rahnenführer, Jörg; Leist, Marcel (Spektrum Akademischer Verlag, 2020)
    Many toxicological test methods, including assays of cell viability and function, require an evaluation of concentration-response data. This often involves curve fitting, and the resulting mathematical functions are then ...
  • Yesiler, Furkan; Serrà Julià, Joan; Gómez Gutiérrez, Emilia, 1975- (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2020)
    The version identification (VI) task deals with the automatic detection of recordings that correspond to the same underlying musical piece. Despite many efforts, VI is still an open problem, with much room for improvement, ...
  • Ramires, António; Chandna, Pritish; Favory, Xavier; Gómez Gutiérrez, Emilia, 1975-; Serra, Xavier (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2020)
    We present a deep neural network-based methodology for synthesising percussive sounds with control over high-level timbral characteristics of the sounds. This approach allows for intuitive control of a synthesizer, enabling ...
  • Blaauw, Merlijn; Bonada, Jordi, 1973- (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2020)
    We propose a sequence-to-sequence singing synthesizer, which avoids the need for training data with pre-aligned phonetic and acoustic features. Rather than the more common approach of a content-based attention mechanism ...
  • Chandna, Pritish; Blaauw, Merlijn; Bonada, Jordi, 1973-; Gómez Gutiérrez, Emilia, 1975- (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2020)
    We present a deep learning based methodology for extracting the singing voice signal from a musical mixture based on the underlying linguistic content. Our model follows an encoder-decoder architecture and takes as input ...
  • Wanner, Leo; Domínguez Bajo, Mónica; Soler Company, Juan (ACL (Association for Computational Linguistics), 2020)
    This paper introduces ThemePro, a toolkit for the automatic analysis of thematic progression. Thematic progression is relevant to natural language processing (NLP) applications dealing, among others, with discourse structure, ...
