Alex Miklashevsky is a research fellow in the Potsdam Embodied Cognition Group (PECoG). He received his master degree at the Tomsk State University (Russia) in the field of Cognitive Linguistics, where he worked with experimental cognitive linguistics, theories of embodied cognition and psycholinguistic databases collection. At the moment, Alex Miklashevsky is working on his PhD thesis at the University of Potsdam on the topic “Motor representation of number knowledge” where he uses measurements of spontaneous and unconscious changes in the grip force while processing of number concepts in order to reveal the principles of embodied number representation.
