Bio : Neurosciences and Neuroergonomics Senior Researcher (PhD, Habil.)

My main research topic is about studying the neural bases of executive functioning, applied to both healthy and injured brains. I’m expert in different techniques of brain imaging and psychophysiological measurements (EEG, NIRS, eye tracking, ECG) as well as non-invasive brain stimulation (tRNS). My work extend from airplane pilots to brain injured patients (Traumatic brain injuries and vascular disease) to improve cognitive performance with neurotraining, whether to recover from lesion or improve flight safety.
