Melinda A. Jeglinski is a doctoral candidate in the Potsdam Embodied Cognition Group (PECoG). She holds a Bachelor's degree in Linguistics from University of Constance and received her Master's degree  from Berlin School of Mind and Brain, Humboldt University, Berlin.

Her research interests contain a wide spectrum within the cognitive sciences and neuroscience. In particular, she is interested in numerical cognition with a focus on cognition of negative integers and in social neuroscience. She is experienced in the scientific methods EEG, ECG, breath measurement, GSR/skin conductance and cortical stimulation with TMS, TdCS and TaCS.

In her doctoral project with the title  Grounding Negation – Investigations on Negative Numbers and Linguistic Negation she investigates the underlying mechanisms of numerical cognition. Her work aims to inform the general understanding of number processing as well as the processing of abstract concepts - such as negativity - from the perspective of embodiment. This person has no teaching duties.
