Luis Martínez Otero

Director of the Visual Neurosciences Laboratory at the Neurosciences Institute of Alicante, CSIC-UMH; he received his PhD at the University of Santiago de Compostela working with Antonio Canedo, and did his postdoctoral training at Rockefeller University, New York, with Torsten N. Wiesel. His lab tries to understand how the brain constructs the visual perception of the world and how these brain mechanisms can help us to design new computer applications or to understand the biological meaning of art, aesthetics or morality. His work has appeared in television programs (Tres14, La Noche Temática, Channel 4-UK) and popular magazines (Redes, Quo, Muy Interesante, New Scientist, Scientific American). Since April 2009 he co-writes the blog The gray matters.
