    • A 4+1 architecture for in vivo electrophysiology visual prosthesis 

      Barriga-Rivera, Alejandro; Eiber, Calvin D.; Matteucci, Paul B.; Chen, Spencer C.; Morley, John W.; Lovell, Nigel H.; Suaning, Gregg J. (Càtedra d'Accessibilitat (CATAC), 2016)
      Open Access
      Researchers around the globe are working towards restoring vision to the blind through the development of a visual neuroprosthesis. Overcoming physical, technical and biological limitations represents one of the main ...
    • A Video Database for Analyzing Affective Physiological Responses 

      Granero Moya, Marcel (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2019-06)
      Bachelor thesis
      Open Access
      Affective computing, leveraged by machine learning techniques, is advancing rapidly in the task of affect recognition in videos. However, there is a need for more annotated data. Several studies have built huge video ...
    • Biological tissue characterization by magnetic induction spectroscopy (MIS): requirements and limitations 

      Scharfetter, Hermann; Casañas Bueno, Roberto; Rosell Ferrer, Francisco Javier (IEEE-INST ELECTRICAL ELECTRONICS ENGINEERS INC, 2003-07-31)
      Open Access
      Magnetic induction spectroscopy (MIS) aims at the contactless measurement of the passive electrical properties (PEP) σ, ε, and μ of biological tissues via magnetic fields at multiple frequencies. Whereas previous publications ...
    • Breaking of the excitatory-inhibitory balance in neural networks 

      Pericas Iturriagagoitia, Cristina (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2016-07-04)
      Bachelor thesis
      Open Access
      Covenantee:   New York University
      Experimental and theoretical study of membrane potentials of neurons in culture provide evidence of some of the mechanisms responsible for excitatory-inhibitory imbalance.
    • Effects of small conductance calcium activated potassium channels in atrial myocytes 

      Peñaranda Ayllón, Angelina; Echebarría Domínguez, Blas; Álvarez Lacalle, Enrique; Rodríguez Cantalapiedra, Inma (IEEE Computer Society Conference Publishing Services (CPS), 2017)
      Conference lecture
      Open Access
      Among the different potassium channels present in cardiac myocytes, the small conductance Ca2+ activated potassium channels (SK channels) are particular because they are affected by changes in intracellular calcium. The ...
    • Fluid-electro-mechanical model of the human heart for supercomputers 

      Santiago, Alfonso (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2018-03-22)
      Doctoral thesis
      Open Access
      The heart is a complex system. From the transmembrane cell activity to the spatial organization in helicoidal fibers, it includes several spatial and temporal scales. The heart muscle is surrounded by two main tissues that ...
    • Generador de pulsos para la estimulación de cultivos de cardiomiocitos, con salida en corriente, bifásico y con eliminación activa de componente contínua 

      Araujo Sousa, David (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2015-10)
      Master thesis
      Open Access
      The reparation or recovering of damaged cardiac tissue caused by a heart attack or other disease that could damage the tissue, is one of the most attractive fields and possibly more important for tissue engineering research. ...
    • Integrating multi-unit electrophysiology and plastic culture dishes for network neuroscience 

      Morales Larramendi, Ricardo; Riss, M; Wang, Liang; Gavin, R; Del, Rio Ja; Alcubilla González, Ramón; Claverol Tinturé, Enrique (2008-11)
