I have joined the MySpace lab in May 2018 as a PhD student, where I’m currently involved in research projects that use fMRI to evaluate the relationship between superior cognitive function and multisensory body representation and its plasticity in amputees. I studied medicine at the Sapienza University (Rome, Italy), where I’ve done an internship in the Neurocritical Care Unit and the Headache Research Centre of Umberto I Hospital. During my thesis I used tDCS, a neuromodulation technique, for the treatment of refractory chronic migraine and bipolar disorder. I also studied complex visual and bodily image disturbances as a consequence of migraine aura.
