  2. The effects of question-generation training on metacognitive knowledge, self regulation and learning approaches in science.

    Psicothema 26(3):385 (2014) PMID 25069559

    Although much research has examined the impact of question generation on students' reading comprehension and learning from lectures, far less research has analysed its influence on how students learn and study science. The present study aims to bridge this knowledge gap. Using a quasi-experimental d...

Thirty-seven clinically depressed older adults aged 64-83, who were also receiving pharmacological treatment, were randomly assigned to life rev...
  6. How to measure the internationality of scientific publications.

    Psicothema 24(3):435 (2012) PMID 22748737

    Although the term "internationality" has never been defined by consensus, it is commonly used as a synonym of quality. Even though its meaning has never been established, internationality is frequently used to evaluate scientists, publications, or universities in many different countries. The presen...

    Psicothema 23(2):203 (2011) PMID 21504670

    We tried to verify whether, as a consequence of such conditioning, diminution of the unconditioned response (UR) was observed. With this aim, IAPS («International Affective Picture System») pictures were selected as stimuli. A picture showing a burnt face was used as the aversive US (USav), and a pi...

    Psicothema 23(1):146 (2011) PMID 21266156

    We developed short versions of the scales, which also showed good reliabilities. The aggressor version presented good convergent validity with direct aggression and impulsivity measures. Finally, none of the scales showed differences associated with sex....
