Data from: Modeling the perception of audiovisual distance: Bayesian causal inference and other models

Catarina Mendonça, Pietro Mandelli & Ville Pulkki
Studies of audiovisual perception of distance are rare. Here, visual and auditory cue interactions in distance are tested against several multisensory models, including a modified causal inference model. In this causal inference model predictions of estimate distributions are included. In our study, the audiovisual perception of distance was overall better explained by Bayesian causal inference than by other traditional models, such as sensory dominance and mandatory integration, and no interaction. Causal inference resolved with probability...

Data from: Extending full protection inside existing marine protected areas or reducing fishing effort outside can reconcile conservation and fisheries goals

1. Most fish stocks worldwide are fished at maximum sustainable yield (MSY) or overfished, as many fisheries management strategies have failed to achieve sustainable fishing. Identifying effective fisheries management strategies has now become urgent. 2. Here, we developed a spatially-explicit metapopulation model accounting for population connectivity in the north-western Mediterranean Sea, and parameterized it for three ecologically and economically important coastal fish species: the white seabream Diplodus sargus, the two-banded seabream Diplodus vulgaris and the...

Present and future distribution of bat hosts of sarbecoviruses: implications for conservation and public health

Renata Lara Muylaert, Tigga Kingston, Jinhong Luo, Maurício Humberto Vancine, Nikolas Galli, Colin Carlson, Reju Sam John, Maria Cristina Rulli & David Hayman
Global changes in response to human encroachment into natural habitats and carbon emissions are driving the biodiversity extinction crisis and increasing disease emergence risk. Host distributions are one critical component to identify areas at risk of viral spillover, and bats act as reservoirs of diverse viruses. We developed a reproducible ecological niche modelling pipeline for bat hosts of SARS-like viruses (subgenus Sarbecovirus), given that several closely-related viruses have been discovered and sarbecovirus-host interactions have gained...

Data from: InGaAs/InAlAs single photon avalanche diode for 1550 nm photons

Xiao Meng, Shiyu Xie, Xinxin Zhou, Niccolò Calandri, Mirko Sanzaro, Alberto Tosi, Chee Hing Tan & Jo Shien Ng
A single photon avalanche diode (SPAD) with an InGaAs absorption region, and an InAlAs avalanche region was designed and demonstrated to detect 1550 nm wavelength photons. The characterization included leakage current, dark count rate and single photon detection efficiency as functions of temperature from 210 to 294 K. The SPAD exhibited good temperature stability, with breakdown voltage dependence of approximately 45 mV K−1. Operating at 210 K and in a gated mode, the SPAD achieved...

Seismic hazard values are expressed in terms of maximum horizontal component of the expected ground shaking (ag=fraction of gravity acceleration) with 10% probability of exceedance in 50 years, referred to rocky soils (Vs30>800 m/s, class A, paragraph 3.2.1 in Ministerial Decree September 14th 2005). The ag values have been estimated according two grid points not overlapping: a) with step 0.05 degrees, according the requirements of the Ordinance 3519 (Official Gazette n.108, May 11th 2006), with...

Assessment of connectivity patterns of the marbled crab Pachygrapsus marmoratus in the Adriatic and Ionian seas through combination of genetic data and Lagrangian simulations

Lorenzo Zane, Ilaria Anna Maria Marino, Marcello Schiavina, Giorgio Aglieri, Stanislao Bevilacqua, Elisa Boscari, Leonardo Congiu, Sara Faggion, Claudia Kruschel, Chiara Papetti, Tomaso Patarnello, Marta Paterno, Emanuela Voutsinas & Paco Melià
Seascape connectivity studies, informing the level of exchange of individuals between populations, can provide extremely valuable data for marine population biology and conservation strategy definition. Here we used a multidisciplinary approach to investigate the connectivity of the marbled crab (Pachygrapsus marmoratus), a high dispersal species, in the Adriatic and Ionian basins. A combination of genetic analyses (based on 15 microsatellites screened in 314 specimens), Lagrangian simulations (obtained with a biophysical model of larval dispersal) and...

Graphical and Computational Tools to Guide Parameter Choice for the Cluster Weighted Robust Model

Andrea Cappozzo, Luis Angel García-Escudero, Francesca Greselin & Agustín Mayo-Iscar
The Cluster Weighted Robust Model (CWRM) is a recently introduced methodology to robustly estimate mixtures of regressions with random covariates. The CWRM allows users to flexibly perform regression clustering, safeguarding it against data contamination and spurious solutions. Nonetheless, the resulting solution depends on the chosen number of components in the mixture, the percentage of impartial trimming, the degree of heteroscedasticity of the errors around the regression lines and of the clusters in the explanatory variables....

Numerous centrifuge experiments (e.g., Rosebrook 2001; Ugalde et al. 2007; Gajan and Kutter 2008; Deng et al. 2012; Hakhamaneshi et al. 2012; Liu et al. 2013; Allmond and Kutter 2014; Loli et al. 2014) and 1g shake-table experiments (e.g., Shirato et al. 2008; Drosos et al. 2012; Antonellis et al. 2015; Tsatsis and Anastasopoulos 2015) have demonstrated that rocking shallow foundations can be designed to provide re-centering and energy dissipation with little damage to the...

Data from: Matching oceanography and genetics at the basin scale. Seascape connectivity of the Mediterranean shore crab in the Adriatic Sea

Marcello Schiavina, Ilaria A. M. Marino, Lorenzo Zane & Paco Melià
Investigating the interactions between the physical environment and early life history is crucial to understand the mechanisms that shape the genetic structure of marine populations. Here, we assessed the genetic differentiation in a species with larval dispersal, the Mediterranean shore crab (Carcinus aestuarii) in the Adriatic Sea (central Mediterranean), and we investigated the role of oceanic circulation in shaping population structure. To this end, we screened 11 polymorphic microsatellite loci from 431 individuals collected at...

Data from:A computational study of cancer hyperthermia based on vascular magnetic nanoconstructs

Mahdi Nabil & Paolo Zunino
The application of hyperthermia to cancer treatment is studied using a novel model arising from the fundamental principles of flow, mass and heat transport in biological tissues. The model is defined at the scale of the tumour microenvironment and an advanced computational scheme called the embedded multiscale method is adopted to solve the governing equations. More precisely, this approach involves modelling capillaries as one-dimensional channels carrying flow, and special mathematical operators are used to model...

Carlo Cosimo Quattrocchi, Maria Francesca De Pandis, Claudia Piervincenzi, Manuela Galli, Jean Marc Melgari, Gaetano Salomone, Patrizio Sale, Carlo Augusto Mallio, Filippo Carducci & Fabrizio Stocchi
Objective: The present study shows the results of a double-blind sham-controlled pilot trial to test whether measurable stimulus-specific functional connectivity changes exist after Automatic Mechanical Peripheral Stimulation (AMPS) in patients with idiopathic Parkinson Disease. Methods: Eleven patients (6 women and 5 men) with idiopathic Parkinson Disease underwent brain fMRI immediately before and after sham or effective AMPS. Resting state Functional Connectivity (RSFC) was assessed using the seed-ROI based analysis. Seed ROIs were positioned on basal...
