Laboratory Role

Research assistant

Research Areas

– Visuospatial attention;

– Brain-computer interfaces;

– Electroencephalography (EEG), event-related potential (ERP) technique;

– Clinical neuropsychology.

Current Research

I’m actually involved in the “Senior Channel” EU Project for developing a system of TV control by means of brain signals (i.e., ERPs).
