Hèctor M. Manrique

I graduated in Psychology in 1999, University Jaume I of Castellon, Spain, and got my PhD while working with Dr. Carlos M.G. Aragon on the effects that ethanol exerts over memory and anxiety. Then I decided to shift topics and try a more naturalistic and less invasive type of research. I successfully managed to get a postdoctoral position and joined the Developmental and Comparative Psychology department at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, Leipzig (Germany), where I had the privilege to work with Dr. Josep Call conducting studies on the cognition of great apes and monkeys. Later on I also collaborated with University of Barcelona investigating the cognition of captive green jays. During 2013-2015 I have been visitant professor at the University of the Balearic Islands (UIB), Palma (Spain). I am now part of the Developmental Psychology department at the University of Zaragoza, Spain.

Due to my rather “multifaceted” scientific background I have developed a broad range of interests that cover several topics in the domains of physical and social cognition. These interests  include: innovation and its relation to cognitive flexibility, object properties’ understanding, cognitive versatility and its relation to insight/foresight, mimicry and affiliative behavior, embodied cognition for objects, and language and communication  in both human and nonhuman animals.
