Alberto Masó. Seminar on "Mente y Cerebro", Navarra University, 2015
Alberto Masó is a Technical Agrarian Engineer by the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) and has a post-graduate degree in Marketing Management offered by ESADE. After spending several years in commercial management and marketing, he began working in the energy sector at Repsol Gas (1997). In 2001 he created his own electric industrial maintenance company where he remained until 2011, when he transformed it into an efficient energy engineering project. He developed a computer application for managing the energy of SMEs as he was granted a US patent for energy and environmental management, which he currently exploits. In parallel, in 1994, he began collaborating as a family guidance specialist and studying affectivity. As of 2011 he has researched biological aspects of affectivity at the University of Navarre (UNAV). In 2014 he discovered the neuronal algorithm resulting in the model "Principle of conservation of the affect" bridge between neuroscience, social science and humanism.
