I am mostly interested in human associative learning and cognitive neuroscience. My experiments usually focus on cue competition phenomena, as blocking or interference between cues. These phenomena have been shown crucial in order to know how human learning works. Recently I started to combine classical measures of learning with other techniques (ERPs, dot-probe task) for a better understanding of the role of attention during associative learning,

MSc in Cognitive Neuroscience from the University of La Laguna (2006). I got my PhD in the University of Malaga in 2008.  I have been Lecturer -since 2008- and Senior Lecturer -since 2013- at the University of Malaga. Now I'm at the UNSW Australia working with Tom Beesley and Mike Le Pelley (School of Psychology).
