Research Interests

At NeuroLab we make use of neuroimaging, genetic, behavioural and neuropsychological approaches to investigate the cognitive skills and neural mechanisms underlying the human ability to orient and navigate in spatial surroundings. We are interested in understanding the fundamental mechanisms related to spatial cognition throughout the life span (from early development to the elderly) and in the event of clinical conditions affecting the central nervous system. We are also interested in investigating the effects of microgravity (as experienced by Astronauts during spaceflights) on the behavioural and neurological mechanisms underlying the human ability to orient and navigate. To find out more about our research project and our team please visit NeuroLab.
