Personal profile

Research interests

When I approached neuroscience and neuropsychology, I became more and more fascinated by humans behavior: we have memory, language, attention, motor skills, emotions ... 

We use our bodies and our emotional expressions to interact (or to act) with the environment. We need motor control and sensory processing to reach a glass of water when thirsty. We need emotions to understand other people, to make decisions and to find a meaning for our lives. 

Patients with impairments in these abilities end up not being able  to perform normal actions such as using a  phone, talking to their friends or run because they are scared. 

These are only a few examples of how much our lives are characterized by routine actions that in reality require a lot of work from our brain networks.

 

My research is focused on  body representation and emotional processing (and their interaction) to study  human-environment relationship.
