Ángeles Correas has a degree in Psychology from the Complutense University of Madrid (UCM) and after she completed a master's degree in cognitive neuropsychology (UCM) and a master's degree in Psychopharmacology (UCM). She carried out her doctoral thesis on the impact on the psychophysiological level of the consumption pattern "binge drinking". After obtaining a doctorate in Psychology (with international mention), she made a research stay for a year and a half at the University of San Diego, California (USA) where she continued with the same line of research. Currently she combines research activity with university teaching in Madrid.

Other research interests

Clinical neuroscience

This research line is focused on the clinical appliance of electrophysiological biomarkers. These biomarkers are developed by studying, with MEG and EEG, the electromagnetic brain activity of patients with neurological disorders. This line participates in the studies that involve patients with epilepsy, stroke, dementia, autism, or ADHD.
