María Masoliver Vila defends her thesis on neuronal coding of weak signals
María Masoliver defended her thesis supervised by Cristina Masoller on February 20 at the Terrassa Campus. Titled `` Neuronal encoding and transmission of weak periodic signals '', the thesis presents a temporal neuronal code based not on the time in which neurons trigger action potentials but on the relative time between them and demonstrates that it is a plausible mechanism for encode information from weak periodic external stimuli.

Department researchers lead rain data analysis from two centuries ago in Catalonia
M. Carmen Casas, Raúl Rodríguez and Alba Llabrés collaborate with the Meteorological Service of Catalonia and the UB to evaluate the quality of rainfall data since 1855, long before standardized measurements were taken at modern meteorological stations. The reliability of these data is key to understanding the effects of climate change in Catalonia.

New mechanism of cell division caused by protein waves discovered
In an international collaborative project, researchers from the UPC Physics Department and the University of Potsdam (Germany) have identified a new form of cell division caused by protein waves. A discovery that supposes new applications in the field of synthetic biology and can serve as a paradigm to implement a self-organized proliferation strategy in artificial cells.

The analysis of a meteorite reveals secrets about the birth of the solar system
An international team of cosmochemists and astrophysicists, which includes Jordi José, a researcher from the Physics Department of the UPC and the Institut d'Estudis Espacials de Catalunya (IEEC), has discovered a meteorite grain forged during the final phases of a star disappeared a long time ago. Encapsulated in a meteorite collected in Antarctica, the tiny grain - only a few microns in size - has shed new light on the terminal phases of star life and how they sow the universe with the building blocks of new stars, planets and life.

Pablo Amil defends his thesis on medical image analysis using artificial intelligence
Pablo Amil defended his doctoral thesis supervised by Cristina Masoller, in the ETSIAAT in Terrassa on February 11, 2020. Titled "Machine learning methods for the characterization and classification of complex data", the thesis presents several automatic learning methods focused particularly on the analysis of ophthalmological images, and complex data in general. The results presented in the thesis show how the proposed artificial intelligence methods are able to distinguish healthy eyes from sick eyes
