Marilena Aiello

Marilena's research interests are food perception and eating, emotional processing, spatial attention and numerical cognition.

Rosilari Bellacosa Marotti

Rosilari is part of Davide Zoccolan's visual neuroscience group. She is interested in psychophysics as well as neural substrates of both low-level and high-level visual processes. She is currently investigating high-level motion perception in rats.

Roberto Bottini

Roberto received a degree in Clinical Psychology at the University of Padua and a PhD in Anthropology and Epistemology of Complexity at the University of Bergamo. Before joining SISSA, he worked as a post-doctoral fellow at the New School for Social Research in New York, University of Milano-Bicocca and the Center for Mind/Brain Sciences in Trento. His main interests are language processing and evolution, consciousness, abstract thinking and cognitive neuroscience of blindness.

Mattia D'Andola

Mattia is a postdoc researcher in the Visual Neuroscience Lab directed by Prof. D. Zoccolan, where his main research interests involve the study of complex features development in the visual cortex, with a particular focus on high level areas of the ventral stream, using data obtained by neural recordings in both anesthetized and implanted rats. 

Alessandro Di Filippo

Alessandro believes that science is the best tool we have today to explore nature and understand ourselves. His experiments aim to explain a complex phenomenon from the neuronal level to the behavioural one. He is currently investigating multisensory perception in rodents, by employing a novel experimental design which he developed.

Kristina Egumenovska

Kristina's current work is on language and rules of inference, in the lab of Alessandro Treves. She applies methods for identifying optimal models of brain connectivity with parameter estimates of simultaneous and lagged connections among brain regions. Her interest in fundamental questions concerning the nature of time and cognition has led her to research in cognitive neuroscience, but she loves art creation as much as syllogistic inference.

Natalia Grion

Natalia is a cognitive neuroscientist with a background in biology. Her main interest is the study of neuronal processes that lead to the formation of abstract representations. She combines behavioral experiments with multi-neuronal recordings.

Nader Nikbakht Nasrabadi

Nader Nikbakht is a postdoctoral research fellow in Mathew Diamond's Tactile perception and learning lab. He is interested in understanding the principles of brain function underlying animal cognition and behavior. His experiments focus on understanding neuronal circuit computations involved in multisensory information processing and decision making. Taking advantage of various tools and techniques in systems neuroscience he approaches the problem by combining theories of statistical computations with behavioral surveys of perceptual decision making and extracellular electrophysiology in rats.
