web m de vegaLicenciado en Psicología en la Universidad Complutense de Madrid (1974), y doctorado en la Universidad de La Laguna (1978), Islas Canarias. En 1981, fui Profesor Agregado en la Universidad de Santiago de Compostela, y a partir de 1982, Catedrático de Psicología en la Universidad de La Laguna. También soy Director del Centro Neurocog (Neurociencia Cognitiva), una amplia red de neurocientíficos en las Islas Canarias.

 

Líneas de Investigación

  • Intentamos demostrar mediante EEG y estimulación cerebrla no invasive que las activaciones motoras asociadas al lenguaje de acción son un aspecto funcional del significado.
  • Analizamos en qué medida el significado corpóreo está modulado por el lenguaje no factual: concretamente, las construcciones negativas y contrafactuales.
  • Estudiamos cómo algunos aspectos de la cognición social, como la exclusión social, se procesan en el cerebro durante la comprensión de narraciones.
  • Exploramos cómo qué la accesibilidad de la información espacial en la está modulada por varios factores, como los marcadores lingüísticos del lenguaje, y la modalidad de codificación de las direcciones (gestos vs. etiquetas verbales).
