Proposals for thesis
NEUROCOGNITIVE BASES OF ATTENTION AND EXECUTIVE FUNCTIONS IN TYPICAL AND ATYPICAL DEVELOPMENT

SPECIFICALLY:

- RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN ENDOGENOUS/EXOGENOUS TEMPORAL ATTENTION MECHANISMS (TEMPORAL ORIENTING/TEMPORAL EXPECTANCY) AND OTHER COGNITIVE PROCESSES (PERCEPTION, MEMORY, ACTION AND LANGUAGE)

- IMPLICIT LEARNING AND ANTICIPATORY NEURAL ACTIVITY IN A DEVELOPMENTAL PERSPECTIVE (SINCE THE FIRST MONTHS LF LIFE)


METHODOLOGICAL THESIS:

HIGH DENSITY EEG/ERP DATA ANALYSIS:

- COMPARISON BETWEEN MANUAL AND AUTOMATIC DATA CLEANING PROCEDURES
- COMPARISON BETWEEN CONFIRMATORY VS. DATA-DRIVEN STATISTICAL APPROACHES IN EG/ERP ANALYSIS


BRAIN SOURCE ANALYSIS:

- COMPARISON BETWEEN DIFFERENT FORWARD/INVERSE MODELING METHODS
LONG-RANGE FUNCTIONAL CONNECTIVITY AT BOTH SENSOR- AND SOURCE LEVEL
