#1
Jose A Ordoñana, Ana Laucirica
This work attempts to study the way higher music graduate students segment a contemporary music work, Itinerant, and to understand the influence of musical feature on segmentation. It attempts to test the theory stating that saliences contribute to organising the music surface. The 42 students listened to the work several times and, in real time, they were requested to indicate the places on the score where they perceived structural boundaries. This work is characterised by its linearity, which could hinder identification of saliences and thereby, the establishment of structural boundaries...

Computational docking and scoring techniques have revolutionized structural bioinformatics by providing unprecedented insights on key aspects of ligand-receptor interaction. Docking is used for optimizing known drugs and for identifying novel binders by predicting their binding mode and affinity. AutoDock and AutoDockTools are free of charge techniques that have been extensively cited in the literature as essential tools in structure-based drug design. Moreover, these methods are fast enough to permit virtual screening of ligand libraries containing tens of thousands of compounds...

Self-face recognition has been widely explored in the last few years. Nevertheless, the current literature relies on the use of standardized photographs, which do not represent daily life face recognition. Therefore, we aim for the first time to evaluate self-face processing in healthy individuals using natural/ambient images, which contain variations in the environment and in the face itself. Forty undergraduate and graduate students performed a forced delayed-matching task including images of one's own face, friend, famous and unknown individuals...

This article memorializes John A. Swets (1928 -2016). Swets's scientific work included empirical experimentation, theory development, and practical applications. It attracted much attention, not only in psychology, but in other fields as well, especially medicine, education, and engineering. His work on the application of the theory of signal detection-which he began while still a graduate student- is very well known and has been influential in essentially every context in which people have to deal with noisy data...

OBJECTIVES: Supervision has recently been recognized as a core competency for clinical psychologists. This recognition of supervision as a distinct competency has evolved in the context of an overall focus on competency-based education and training in health service psychology, and has recently gained momentum. Few clinical psychology doctoral programs offer formal training experiences in providing supervision. METHODS: A pilot peer mentorship program (PMP) where graduate students were trained in the knowledge and practice of supervision was developed...

The high demand for conservation-based work is creating a need for conservation-focused training of current and future graduate students. While many graduates with tertiary degrees in biology are finding careers outside of academia, many programs and mentors continue to prepare students to follow in the footsteps of their professors. Unfortunately, information regarding how to appropriately prepare for today's job market and find success in conservation careers is limited in detail and scope. This problem is further complicated by the differing needs of conservation positions distributed among diverse employers in both economically advanced and developing regions across the globe...

A National Institutes of Health (NIH) taskforce recently recommended decreasing the number of graduate students supported on research assistantships, and instead favoring traineeship and fellowship funding mechanisms. Using instrumental variables estimation with survey data collected from U.S. PhD-granting biomedical sciences departments and their newly-minted PhDs, we find that increases in these programs' NIH-funded traineeships and fellowships do significantly increase programs' total graduate enrollments, particularly of female students...

BACKGROUND: In Brazil there are several challenges to reach a humanized health care. Among them is the well-known lack in academic education and training in palliative care field. This lack is mostly due to the modern medical care culture that prioritize curative medicine ahead of palliative care. As the goal of saving lives is rooted in medical training, death is still confronted as the main enemy of the health professionals. OBJECTIVE: To analyze the knowledge of palliative care among the physical therapists of a University Hospital...

STUDY DESIGN: Clinical measurement study. INTRODUCTION: Measuring the isometric strength generated during isolated hand joint motions is a challenging feat. The Rotterdam Intrinsic Hand Myometer (RIHM; med.engineers, Rotterdam, Netherlands) permits measurement of isolated movements of the hand. To date, there is limited evidence on the inter-rater reliability and limited adult normative data of RIHM. Given that multiple raters, often with varying degrees of experience, are needed to collect normative data, inter-rater reliability testing and a comparison of novice and experienced raters are needed...

Scholars and institutions alike are concerned with academic productivity. Scholars not only further knowledge in their professional fields, they also bring visibility and prestige to themselves and their institutions, which in turn attracts research grants and more qualified faculty and graduate students. Many studies have been done on scholar productivity, and many of them focus on individual factors such as gender, marital status, and individual psychological characteristics. Also, a few studies are concerned about scholars' well-being...

Explicit racial bias has decreased in the United States, but racial stereotypes still exist and conspire in multiple ways to perpetuate the underparticipation of Blacks in science careers. Capitalizing on the potential effectiveness of role-playing video games to promote the type of active learning required to increase awareness of and reduce subtle racial bias, we developed the video game Fair Play, in which players take on the role of Jamal, a Black male graduate student in science, who experiences discrimination in his PhD program...
