Current research interests
The main research interests are in the study of cognitive functions using the Transcranial Magnetic
Stimulation (TMS) technique in healthy subjects and in patients affected by neurological damages.
The main field of investigation is: the relationship between language and motor system; the effects
of TMS or TBS (theta burst stimulation) on the improvement of cognitive functions in aphasics
patients with unilateral stroke; the role of the cerebellum and other brain structures in the processes
of perception and attention.
