Proposals for thesis
Italiano
Le tesi sono proposte dopo colloquio con lo studente, volto a conoscerne le inclinazioni, le attitudini e le esperienze.
I principali temi di competenza del docente sono il linguaggio e le funzioni matematiche, ma ogni tipo di argomento può essere oggetto di studio. Le metodiche usate sono quelle delle neuroscienze cognitive, con preminenza degli studi clinici, ma occasionalmente vengono usate tecniche strumentali come ERP, TMS o neuroimmagine. Di preferenza gli studi riguardano singoli pazienti, ma possono essere oggetto di studio anche popolazioni patologiche (es. pazienti con malattia di Alzheimer) e normali. Occasionalmente gli studi sono su bambini, in generale con l'intento di confrontarne la prestazione con quella di pazienti.

English
Theses are proposed after a meeting with the student. The aim of the first meeting is to understand what he/she likes, what is the type of his/her competence and what he/she is prepared to do.
The main topics are language and mathematical functions, but virtually any topic can occasionally be addressed. Methods are those of cognitive neuroscience, with a preference for clinical studies. Occasionally instrumental techniques like ERPs, TMS or neuroimaging are also used. Clinical investigations mainly concern single cases but occasionally the object of the study is a clinical population (e.g. Alzheimer's disease) or a normal population. Occasionally developmental populations are studied, mainly in order to compare their performance with that of pathological populations.
