BIO

 

L J..R.L completed her PhD in Experimental Psychology, Linguistics and Neuroscience at the University of Milano-Bicocca in 2008. She currently works as Assistant Professor at the Department of Psychology of the University of Milano-Bicocca and achieved the National Scientific Qualification as Associate Professor in 2013. She teaches methods and techniques of Neuropsychological evaluation; she supervised over 50 undergraduate students for Bachelor and Master Degree, and tutored over 30 students for their training in experimental research. At the moment she is the supervisor of two post-doc fellows and two PhD students.

She is an expert in TMS use, as attested by several scientific international publications; her knowledge of the technique started in 1-year period abroad at Dr. Walsh’s lab at ICN, UCL, UK and was corroborated by another 1-period abroad in Dr. Cohen’s lab at the NINDS, NIH, US.  After a post-doc at the Department of Preclinical-Science, University of Milano she embraced TMS-EEG technique which is now her preferential method of investigation.

Her research interest focused on the neural correlates of higher cognitive functions, such as language and short-term memory, investigated by a multimodal approach including functional magnetic resonance (fMRI), the study of neuropsychological patients, the use of non-invasive brain stimulation techniques such as TMS, TMS-EEG and tDCS.
