    Dendriform pulmonary ossification is a rare condition often diagnosed by either surgery or postmortem examination. We report a 43-y-old man with a history of nonproductive cough for 1 y. His physical examination was ...
  • El Niño and Fishing Location Decisions: The Chilean Straddling Jack Mackerel Fishery 

    Peña Torres, Julio; Dresdner, Jorge; Vasquez, Felipe (2017)
    Fishery management of straddling stocks is conditional on available knowledge about relevant environmental shocks, such as El Niño events, affecting stock behavior. But knowledge of these issues is scant, particularly in ...
  • Precautionary saving: A taxonomy of prudence 

    Vergara, Marcos (2017)
    We extend Gunning (2010) by analyzing the effect of risk on saving. We derive a general prudence index that determines the threshold for the future risk that makes saving increase. We relate our results to the utility ...
  • Distributional impacts of climate change on basin communities: an integrated modeling approach 

    Ponce, Roberto; Fernández, Francisco; Stehr, Alejandra; Vásquez Lavín, Felipe; Godoy Faúndez, Alex (2017)
    Agriculture is one of the most vulnerable economic sectors to the impacts of climate change, specifically those related with expected changes in water availability. By using a hydro-economic model, this study assesses the ...
  • Measuring chronic multidimensional poverty 

    Alkire, Sabina; Apablaza, Mauricio; Chakravarty, Satya; Yalonetzky, Gaston (2017)
    This paper adopts a new approach to the measurement of chronic multidimensional poverty. It relies on the counting approach of Alkire and Foster (2011) for the measurement of multidimensional poverty in each time period, ...
  • Brain state-dependent recruitment of high-frequency oscillations in the human hippocampus 

    Billeke, Pablo; Ossandon, Tomas; Stockle, Marcelo; Perrone-Bertolotti, Marcela; Kahane, Philippe; Lachaux, Jean-Philippe; Fuentealba, Pablo (2017-09)
    Ripples are high-frequency bouts of coordinated hippocampal activity believed to be crucial for information transfer and memory formation. We used intracortical macro electrodes to record neural activity in the human ...
  • Understanding Taiwan’s Agricultural Protectionism 

    Schmidt Hernández, Fernando Mariano (2017)
    The following article aims to discern whether partial protectionism in Taiwan’s meat markets can still be explained as a function of Taiwan’s ‘strong state argument’, which was developed to understand the nation’s policies ...
  • Fertility, kinship and the evolution of mass ideologies 

    David-Barrett, Tamas; Dunbar, Robin I. M. (2017)
    Traditional human societies are organised around kinship, and use kinship networks to generate large scale community projects. This is made possible by a combination of linguistic kin recognition, a uniquely human trait, ...
  • Predicting Posttraumatic Stress Symptom Prevalence and Local Distribution after an Earthquake with Scarce Data 

    Dussaillant, Francisca; Apablaza, Mauricio (2017)
    After a major earthquake, the assignment of scarce mental health emergency personnel to different geographic areas is crucial to the effective management of the crisis. The scarce information that is available in the ...
  • Language as a coordination tool evolves slowly 

    David-Barrett, Tamas; Dunbar, Robin I. M. (2016)
    Social living ultimately depends on coordination between group members, and communication is necessary to make this possible. We suggest that this might have been the key selection pressure acting on the evolution of ...
  • Fare evasion in public transport: A time series approach 

    Troncoso, Rodrigo; Grange, Louis de (2017)
    An econometric model is presented that identifies the main variables explaining evasion of fare payment on a public transport system. The model uses a cointegration approach. The model parameters are estimated using data ...
  • Attending to the heart is associated with posterior alpha band increase and a reduction in sensitivity to concurrent visual stimuli. 

    Villena-González, M.; Moënne-Loccoz, C.; Lagos, R.; Alliende, L.; Billeke, Pablo; Aboitiz, F.; López, V.; Cosmelli, D. (2017)
    Attentional mechanisms have been studied mostly in specific sensory domains, such as auditory, visuospatial, or tactile modalities. In contrast, attention to internal interoceptive visceral targets has only recently begun ...
  • Diferencias en la percepción de inseguridad a nivel cognitivo y emocional de acuerdo al perfil socio demográfico y político. Estudio del gran Concepción, Chile
