Dip. Neuroscienze, via Giustiniani 5, Padova (Unità Neurologia, II Piano, ala sinistra)

Le mie principali aree di ricerca includono: funzioni esecutive, invecchiamento cognitivo, asimmetrie emisferiche, lobi frontali, attenzione spaziale e temporale. I principali metodi includono neuroimmagini, potenziali evento-relati, neuropsicologia e psicologia sperimentale. My main research areas include: executive functions, cognitive aging, hemispheric asymmetries, frontal lobes, spatial and temporal attention. The main methods we uwe include Neuroimaging, Event-related potentials, Neuropsychology and experimental psychology

Argomenti: Processi cognitivi superiori (funzioni esecutive), asimmetrie emisferiche, invecchiamento cognitivo. Metodi: EEG, fMRI, Neuropsicologia, Neurostimolazione. Nota: Prego i potenziali tesisti interessati a inoltrarmi il proprio CV completo insieme alla richiesta di tesi, e a non presentarsi troppo tempo prima rispetto al momento in cui si è effettivamente disponibili a impegnarsi concretamente e intensamente per la tesi.
