Zeynep Gokcen Kaya

Zeynep joined SISSA in 2014 and currently works with professor Treves. She is interested in the cross-linguistic neural and perceptual representation of the phoneme manifold. Zeynep is from Turkey, and she obtained her MSc degree in Cognitive Neuroscience from the joint program of University of Trento and SISSA.

Katarina Marjanovic

Katarina joined SISSA in 2014 and works under the supervision of Alessandro Treves. Her work is focused on language processing and its underlying brain mechanisms. She is from Slovenia and graduated in 2013 at The Middle European interdisciplinary master programme in Cognitive Science.

Giulio Matteucci

Giulio is PhD student in the Visual Neuroscience Laboratory under the supervision of Davide Zoccolan. He is working on several projects aiming at the characterization of shape and motion information processing across different rat visual cortical areas through in vivo electrophysiology and computational analysis. Giulio is from Italy and he received his Ms. in Physics from the University of Turin in 2015.

Andrea Nadalini

Andrea joined SISSA in 2015 and works with Davide Crepaldi. His doctoral project aims to enlighten the different degrees of semantic relatedness between words, with particular emphasis on those relationships being grabbed with unconsciously perceived stimuli. Andrea is from Italy, and gained his MA in Linguistics from the University of Bologna.

Sofia Adelaide Osimo

Sofia joined the Rumiati Lab in 2014. Her research interests revolve around the neural substrates of psychological and psychiatric conditions, with a focus on eating disorders.

Valentina Nicole Pescuma

Valentina is a PhD student working under the supervision of Davide Crepaldi. Her research interests are currently focused on the fundamental cognitive mechanisms underlying reading. Valentina is from Italy; she has a background in Humanities, Neuroscience and Neuropsychology.

Maris Skujevskis

Maris joined the Tactile Perception and Learning Lab in 2012. He is studying the mechanisms of sensory working memory in humans using electroencephalography. Before his PhD studies at SISSA he obtained a Master's degree in Cognitive Neuroscience at the University of Trento. Prior to that he studied philosophy in his home country - Latvia - with a focus on the philosophy of cognitive science. 

Andrea Solmi

Andrea is working under the supervision of Domenica Bueti, in the time perception lab. Andrea received his Bachelor's degree in Psychology and his Master's degree in Cognitive Neuroscience and Neuropsychology at the University of Bologna. 

Liviu Soltuzu

Liviu joined the Visual Neuroscience lab in 2013, to work under the supervision of Davide Zoccolan. He is investigating the dynamics of neural activity in the visual cortex of rats exposed to naturalistic stimuli. Previously, he studied engineering and neurobiology in Bucharest, Romania.

Davide Spalla

Davide is a first year PhD student under the supervision of Alessandro Treves, working on self-organising neural network models involved in spatial representation. He graduated in Physics of Complex Systems in Turin in 2016.
