Miguel Rubianes Méndez

Miguel Rubianes Méndez studied Pedagogy (educational sciences) at the University Complutense of Madrid (UCM), graduating first of his promotion. During his bachelor's degree, he got involved in cognitive neuroscience research at the Center of Evolution and Human Behavior, as he was enthusiastic about studying how the human brain learns and works. After receiving a master's degree in Cognitive Neuroscience (UCM), he is currently pursuing a PhD in Psychology at the same university thanks to a fellowship by the Spanish Ministry (FPU grant), supervised by Dr. Manuel Martín-Loeches and Dr. Francisco Muñoz.

His project covers the study of the neural underpinnings of social cognition and language processing by using different electrophysiological approaches (event-related potentials, time-frequency representations, and source analysis). His current research focuses on the study of how language comprehension could be modulated by extralinguistic factors related to face perception such as emotional facial expressions or facial identity.
