    Article
    Open Access
    Emerging evidence points to coordinated action of chemical and mechanical cues during brain development. At early stages of neocortical development, angiogenic factors and chemokines such as CXCL12, ephrins, and semaphorins ...
  • Mechanical ventilation promotes lung tumour spread by modulation of cholesterol cell content 

    López Alonso, Inés; López Martínez, Cecilia; Martín Vicente, Paula; Amado Rodríguez, Laura; González López, Adrián; Mayordomo Colunga, Juan; del Busto, Cecilia; Bernal, Marina; Crespo, Irene; Astudillo, Aurora; Arias Guillén, Miguel; Fueyo, Antonio; Almendros, Isaac; Otero, Jorge; Sanz Fraile, Héctor; Farré, Ramon; Albaiceta, Guillermo M.

    Article
    Open Access
    Background: Mechanical stretch of cancer cells can alter their invasiveness. During mechanical ventilation, lungs may be exposed to an increased amount of stretch, but the consequences on lung tumours have not been explored. ...
  • Analysis of roughness, the material removal rate, and the acoustic emission signal obtained in flat grinding processes 

    Sender, Piotr; Buj Corral, Irene; Álvarez Flórez, Jesús Andrés (2024-02-06)
    Article
    Open Access
    In this work, the analysis of the acoustic emission (AE) signal in grinding processes is addressed. The proposed analysis method decomposes the acoustic signal into three frequency ranges. The total energy of each range ...
