About me

I completed my undergraduate degree in Applied Psychological Science at the University of L’Aquila with a dissertation project entitled “Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation: effects on brain plasticity”.

I have achieved my Masters in Cognitive Neuroscience at Durham University concentrating my final thesis on investigating the occurrence of the P300 component using a novel dry and mobile EEG system.

I am now continuing my studies at Durham University undertaking a PhD titled “Neural prosthetic advancement: identification of circuitry and decode optimization”. Briefly, the project wishes to investigate, with the use of fMRI techniques, some characteristics of movement-related brain activation.
