Introduction
I am working as a predoctoral researcher (FPU- Ministry of Sciences, Innovation and Universities) at the Polibienestar Research Institute (University of Valencia). My main research interest is focused on the study of emotional and cognitive processes in people with acquired brain injury.

Interoception, a multifaceted concept defined as the perception of internal bodily signals, is crucially involved in mental health in general and in emotion regulation in particular, being interoceptive sensibility (IS) one of the most studied interoceptive processes. The main objective of this study was to explore the relationships between IS and...

Disturbances in eating behaviors have been widely related to obesity. However, little is known about the role of obesity-related biomarkers in shaping habitual patterns of eating behaviors (i.e., eating styles) in childhood. The objective of the present study was to explore the relationships between several biomarkers crucially involved in obesity...

Objectives: Acquired brain injury (ABI) can lead to the emergence of several disabilities and is commonly associated with high rates of anxiety and depression symptoms. Self-related constructs, such as self-esteem and self-compassion, might play a key role in this distressing symptomatology. Low explicit (i.e., deliberate) self-esteem is associated...

Introduction: Lafora disease is autosomal recessive progressive myoclonus epilepsy with late childhood-to teenage-onset caused by loss-of-function mutations in either EPM2A or EPM2B genes encoding laforin or malin, respectively. Development: The main symptoms of Lafora disease, which worsen progressively, are: myoclonus, occipital seizures, gene...

TACTILITY has the overall aim of including rich and meaningful tactile information into novel interaction systems through technology for closed-loop tactile interaction with virtual environments. By mimicking the characteristics of the natural tactile feedback, it will substantially increase the quality of immersive Virtual Reality (VR) experience used locally or remotely (tele-manipulation). The approach is based on transcutaneous electro-tactile stimulation delivered through electrical pulses with high resolution spatio-temporal distribution. To achieve it, significant development of technologies for transcutaneous stimulation, textile-based multi-pad electrodes and tactile sensation electronic skin, coupled with ground-breaking research of perception of elicited tactile sensations in VR, is needed.
