Mehdi Adibi-Sede

Mehdi is a postdoctoral research fellow in Mathew Diamond's Tactile perception and learning lab. He is interested in perceptual and motor categorization in a multimodal visual tactile behavior.

Marilena Aiello

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

Sara Andreetta

Sara obtained a Ph.D. from University of Udine in 2014 with a thesis on the linguistic assessment of patients with aphasia. After a postdoc at University of Nova Gorica (SLO), she joined LIMBO lab in 2017. Sara tries to understand how patterns of a meter can enhance our ability to keep poetry in long-term memory.

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.

Vezha Boboeva

Vezha is a postdoc working with Alessandro Treves. She is broadly interested in memory and language from a neural network perspective. More specifically, she investigates the principles that may be held accountable for questions of a quantitative scope such as the capacity for the storage of semantic memories in the cortex, but also how the specific organization of such memories impacts on the dynamics of the network, as an attempt to understand the complexity of grammar and that of our train of thoughts. 

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.

Jon Carr

Jon completed his PhD at the University of Edinburgh, where he explored the evolution of language and conceptual systems through a combination of computational modelling and experiments. Jon is interested in Bayesian and information-theoretic approaches to learning and reasoning and how such principles can explain the high-level complexity observed in human behaviour and the culturally evolved phenomena that arise from such behaviour. At SISSA, Jon has joined Davide Crepaldi's Language, Learning and Reading lab to work on statistical learning in reading. Personal website: https://joncarr.net 

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.
