    TMS-EEG: A novel technique to study cortico-cortical connectivity

    Room: FdP - Enzo Paci

    In the past, the major focus of research defining the brain-behavior relationship was to identify the segregated brain regions recruited by a given task. More recent developments have emphasized the importance of distributed networks at all levels, from individual neurons to neural populations and brain regions. Defining the human brain connectome has become one of the major goals of ...

    Space without sight

    Room: FdP - Enzo Paci

    Vision typically provides the most reliable information about our surrounding space. What happens when you cannot rely on this sensory input due to blindness? I will explore the behavioral and brain reorganizations that occur in blind people for the processing of space. Aside from quantitative differences, I will demonstrate that congenitally blind individuals have a qualitatively different way of...

    From symmetry perception to neuroaesthetics.

    Room: FdP - Enzo Paci

    Bilateral symmetry is a prominent feature of the visual world. Not only are human faces and bodies symmetric, but most other living organisms have at least one axis of symmetry, as do manufactured items, such as tools and buildings. I’ll present the results of a series of experiments that shed light on the neural correlates of visual (and haptic) symmetry detection, also considering the case of ...

    Self and Other in the Human Sensorimotor System and Beyond

    Room: FdP - Enzo Paci

    People experience and think of themselves as individuals or as a “self” that forms a coherent entity and is clearly distinct from other persons and the world that surrounds them. Recent theories emphasize the sensorimotor experience of the body as the basis of self-awareness. Here intentional actions make a key contribution to the sense of self by allowing the interaction with the world in a f...

    Bodily Sense and Sensibility: Anosognosia, Asomatognosia and Anorexia

    Room: FdP - Enzo Paci

    According to the ‘embodied cognition’ approach several facets of selfhood are causally related to the physical body and its properties. In cognitive neuroscience, primary sensorimotor signals are thought as integrated and re-represented in various levels of the neurocognitive hierarchy to form a number of neurocognitively distinct bodily models, including unconscious and consci...

    Cortical networks for hand dexterity

    Room: FdP - Enzo Paci

    The dexterity of the hand in grasping and manipulating objects is one of the distinctive properties of human and non human primates. Grasping movements involve transforming the visual properties of the object into the coordinated activation of arm and hand muscles to move the upper limb in a coherent way. The cerebral cortex, with its descending outputs to the brainstem and the ...

    Top-down modulations of motor resonance to social stimuli

    Room: Sant Sofia - M205

    Several previous studies have shown a muscle-specific facilitation of cortico-spinal excitability during observation of others’ actions (motor resonance). While motor resonance has been shown to be automatically triggered independently from the observer’s effort to simulate the actions, high-level aspects of actions, including the actor’s intention and context, can modulate its extent and sp...
