Academic discipline: M-PSI/02 Psychobiology and Physiological Psychology

Short Bio

I am a Junior Assistant Professor at the Psychology Department of the University of Bologna and member of the Neuroscience of Motivation, Decision and Learning Group [], directed by Prof. di Pellegrino.

My research concerns the psychophysiological and neural bases of human reinforcement learning and affective processing, with a particular focus on fear.

I use a multimodal approach to conduct my research, combining behavioral, psychophysiological (e.g. skin conductance, electromyography, eye tracking), neuroimaging (EEG) techniques, both in healthy participants and in patients with brain injury.
