During this past winter break 2018-2019, I had the opportunity to engage with the public in my hometown Madrid and talk about my research. I went to the studios of the Spanish Radio and Television Corporation (Radio Clásica – RTVE.es) to contribute to their programme Wavelength (Longitud de Onda) again as expert in Music and Neuroscience. I also had a fantastic time talking about our work on brain-body interactions during music performance as an invited speaker for the Neuroencounters at the Nirakara Institute (Centre for Cognitive Science) in Madrid. Check out their youtube channel for an upcoming broadcast of my talk.
After a few summer months presenting at interesting conferences, working on some papers and grants, I am happy to announce two important news for the Autumn:
I am going to join the Centre for Cognition and Decision Makingat the Higher University of Economics, Moscow, Russia, as a Research Leader Fellow (part time position in addition to my main position at Goldsmiths). There I will mainly supervise new exciting MEG projects. In addition, together with my colleague Max Garagnani from the Computing Department at Goldsmiths, we are launching the new MSc in Computational Cognitive Neuroscience at Goldsmiths.
I was invited to give a workshop on neuroscience and Musical Instrument Digital Interfaces(MIDI) at the Sysmus17 – 10th International Conference, organised by Queen Mary University, London (UK). 13-15-09.17.
In July 2017 the radio programme (Longitud de Onda) (Wavelength) of the Spanish Radio and Television Corporation (Radio Clásica – RTVE.es), which I contribute to, received a special commendation award in the category “Scientific Public Awareness” by “Ciencia en Acción”.
From 27 April 2016 I am collaborating with the Spanish Radio and Television Corporation (Radio Clásica – RTVE.es) to contribute to their programme Wavelength (Longitud de Onda) as expert in Music and Neuroscience.
In addition to presenting topics related to Music and Neuroscience, I select some of the musical pieces to be played during my contribution.
You can tune in and listen every second Thursday of each month between 11:00 and 12:00 (Spain time: GMT+2).
