A study coordinated by Jorge Manzanares, Professor of Pharmacology at the Miguel Hernández University of Elche (UMH), shows that child maltreatment, whatever its form, produces functional brain changes that increase vulnerability to alcohol consumption when reaching adolescence. The results determined that the brains of some young abused people perceived the intake of substances positively and were not able to perceive the risks associated with this addictive behavior.
The Nutritional Epidemiology Unit at the Miguel Hernández University of Elche (UMH), led by Professor Jesús Vioque, has participated in a study that associates the Mediterranean diet with a 30% reduction in the risk of breast cancer.

Seventy-five percent of the patients with hemiplegia who have undergone tests at the Hospital of Alicante with a robotic arm or exoskeleton have managed to move it through a brain interface. Participating in this project, called Brain2Motion, are researchers from the Miguel Hernández University of Elche (UMH), the Cajal Institute at the Spanish National Research Council of Madrid, and the Hospital of Alicante. This system is an improvement for the patients, as they are involved cognitively to carry out the movement, and they are capable of moving the affected limb voluntarily.
