Research interests

Neuropsychology and Cognitive Neuroscience

Cognitive neuroscience and neuropsychology,to explore and understand the neural systems that underlie cognitive functions, to explore and understand cortical plasticity induced and manipulated by means of non-invasive brain stimulation in healthy and pathological adult brain and neuropsychological rehabilitation in patients with dementia or with other neuropsychological pathologies.
