      Sande, José; Peña González, Enrique; Neves, Maria da Graça; Lemos, Rute; Figuero, A.; Reis, María Teresa; Alvarellos, Alberto; Rabuñal, Juan R. (2018)
    • Computational models of neuron-astrocyte interactions lead to improved efficacy in the performance of neural networks 

      Alvarellos, Alberto; Pazos, A.; Porto-Pazos, Ana B. (Hindawi, 2012)
      [Abstract] The importance of astrocytes, one part of the glial system, for information processing in the brain has recently been demonstrated. Regarding information processing in multilayer connectionist systems, it has ...
    • Developing a Secure Low-Cost Radon Monitoring System 

      Alvarellos, Alberto; Gestal, M.; Dorado, Julián; Rabuñal, Juan R. (MDPI AG, 2020-01-29)
      [Abstract] Radon gas has been declared a human carcinogen by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) and the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC). Several studies carried out in Spain ...
    • Development of an Automatic Low-Cost Air Quality Control System: A Radon Application 

      Alvarellos, Alberto; López Chao, Andrea; Rabuñal, Juan R.; García-Vidaurrázaga, María D.; Pazos, A. (MDPI, 2021-03-01)
      [Abstract] Air pollution is the fourth-largest overall risk factor for human health worldwide. Ambient air pollution (outdoors) and household air pollution (indoors) cause about 6.5 million premature deaths. The World ...
    • Indicators Framework for Sustainable Urban Design 

      López Chao, Andrea; Casares Gallego, Amparo; López-Chao, Vicente; Alvarellos, Alberto (2020)
      [Abstract] Climate change and sustainability have recently been object of study due to the impact on the planet and on human activity of the first and the benefits that could derive from the efficiency of the second. ...
    • Machine Learning-Based Radon Monitoring System 

      Valcarce, Diego; Alvarellos, Alberto; Rabuñal, Juan R.; Dorado, Julián; Gestal, M. (MDPI, 2022)
      [Abstract] Radon (Rn) is a biological threat to cells due to its radioactivity. It is capable of penetrating the human body and damaging cellular DNA, causing mutations and interfering with cellular dynamics. Human exposure ...
    • Modeling of energy efficiency for residential buildings using artificial neuronal networks 

      Álvarez Díaz, José Antonio; Rabuñal, Juan R.; García-Vidaurrázaga, María D.; Alvarellos, Alberto; Pazos, A. (Hindawi, 2018-11-28)
      [Abstract] Increasing the energy efficiency of buildings is a strategic objective in the European Union, and it is the main reason why numerous studies have been carried out to evaluate and reduce energy consumption in the ...
    • Operational thresholds of moored ships at the oil terminal of inner port of A Coruña (Spain) 

      Figuero, A.; Sande, José; Peña González, Enrique; Alvarellos, Alberto; Rabuñal, Juan R.; Maciñeira, Enrique (Elsevier, 2019-12-21)
      [Abstract] Minimizing the stay of a vessel in port can lead to improvements in harbor efficiency. Currently, downtimes of cargo operations or their performance reduction because of excessive vessel motion are especially ...
