The BRAIN and the HAND are TWO OF THE MOST COMPLEX ORGANS OF THE HUMAN BODY
Our aim is to increase our knowledge about the mechanisms
underlying their synergic interaction.
Matteo Marucci - Ph.D., Post-Doctoral Research Fellow
Matteo is a Psychologist with a PhD in Neuroscience. He has a background in Virtual Reality (VR) and expertise on embodiment, presence, ownership, and agency. He is now working in combining VR with electrophysiological techniques such as EEG, EMG, and GSR.
Ottavia Maddaluno - Ph.D., Post-Doctoral Research Fellow
Ottavia received her Ph.D. in Psychology, Linguistic and Cognitive Neuroscience from the University of Milano-Bicocca where she specialized in non-invasive brain stimulation techniques (e.g., Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation and Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation) investigating Hebbian-like plasticity mechanisms.
Chiara De Giorgi, Research Fellow
Chiara received her master's degree in Biomedical Engineering from Sapienza University of Rome. Her expertise concerns the deployment of biomedical signal processing techniques, statistical analysis, and machine learning algorithms. She also has programming skills (Matlab, Python). Her scientific activity focuses on the development of techniques for the analysis of kinematic synergies in naturalistic hand movement.
Daniele Sili, Research Fellow
Daniele received his master's degree in Biomedical Engineering from the Sapienza University of Roma. His research activity is focused on computational methods of fMRI data analysis to study the human brain function in resting-state. His skills include preprocessing fMRI data, statistical analysis models, univariate and multivariate methods of analysis, brain connectivity, and machine learning. He is able to program in Matlab, Python, and in Unix systems (Bash).
