Methods to identify differential Item functioning in health context. A systematic Review

Erika Margarita Arias

  The standards of regulation in health interventions have generated in researchers and practitioners, a growing interest in the design and use of tests that are adequate for the collection of information on aspects, such as, the quality of life, level of functioning, emotional state, and adjustment to the health-disease process of patients. Additionally, epidemiological studies are become interested on …

Melatonin is produced by yeast during alcoholic fermentation

María de los Ángeles Morcillo Parra

Melatonin (MEL) is a neurohormone produced in the pineal gland of humans. Its biological properties are related to the circadian rhythms and antioxidant functions, for example, we use it as an alleviation of subjective feelings of jet lag.  MEL is an ubiquitous molecule which can be synthesized in animals, plants, bacteria and yeasts. MEL has been also found in wine, …

Efectes d'un programa de rehabilitació basat en l'exercici físic per la millora de la qualitat de vida de les persones que han patit ictus

Miriam Barra

Actualment, l’ictus és un problema de salut mundial de primer ordre degut a l’alta prevalença i al continu augment de la seva incidència; l’OMS preveu un increment del 27% en la incidència dels ictus entre els anys 2000 i 2025, en relació a l’envelliment de la població (Quaney et al., 2009). L’ictus pot causar la mort o severs dèficits motors …

Synergistic effect of Microbicidal Materials

Ana Maria Montagut

Nowadays, surface contamination by microbes is a universal challenge in medical, domestic, and industrial settings. For that reason it is important the creation of new microbicidal materials in order to solve this problem. Silver nanoparticles are well known for their properties against a wide range of bacteria, viruses, and fungi. Owing to their characteristics they are now one of the …

Incoherent Light Sources for Speckle Reduction in Double Pass Ocular Imaging

Donatus Halpaap

The double pass technique is a well-established method to evaluate the optical quality of a patient’s eye, being capable of determining its aberrations as well as scattering. It is based on imaging a point source onto the retina, where the light is reflected and recorded by a camera after its second pass through the ocular media. For double pass imaging, …

Neurociència, Neuropsicologia i Aprenentatge

Marta Molins Sauri

Actualment la neurociència és un dels temes amb més auge arreu del món. Cada cop més, en un món ple de canvis constants, està guanyant terreny. El neuromàrketing, neuroeconomia, neuroarquitectura, neurodidàctica… fins a arribar a la neuroeducació. La recerca sobre com es desenvolupa i com aprèn el cervell és quelcom amb un potencial increïble per tenir un profund impacte en …

Chiral Magnets Derived from Schiff Bases.

Júlia Mayans Ayats

Research in coordination chemistry clusters of paramagnetic 3d or 4f cations has been a key field in the search of Single-Molecule-Magnet (SMM) response. Single Molecule Magnets are systems where it is possible to obtain permanent magnetization. Contrary to conventional bulk magnets, 3D  magnetic order in not necessary, and the phenomenon has a  purely molecular origin.  Single Molecule magnets are interesting …

Cdc5 kinase regulation and implication in FEAR network

Yolanda Moyano Rodríguez

Dividing cells require of a strict regulation of cell cycle in order to complete it correctly and obtain two healthy daughter cells genetically identical. Mitosis is a highly conserved and regulated process in eukaryotes. Mitosis is divided in four different phases: prophase, metaphase, anaphase and telophase. My research project is focused in mitotic exit regulation, concretely the mechanisms that ensure …

Study of the capability of rRNA to be a marker of viable wine yeast cells

Mercè Sunyer Figueres

Cells in Viable But Not Culturable (VBNC) cell state do not have the capacity of growing, but can be metabolic active. Some wine yeasts in VBNC state have an important role during alcoholic fermentation, affecting the quality of final wine, thus it is important to detect and quantify them as a part of viable cells. VBNC state difficulties the discernment …
