Research Projects & Collaborations

Social Neuroscience Studies
in Young Adults
Project: “Finding the dyadic motor plan: neurocognitive bases of complementary actions”, Milan Center for Neuroscience (NeuroMi), University of Milano-Bicocca, Italy.
Topic: the neurocognitive bases of joint action studied with behavioural tasks, non-invasive brain stimulation techniques and fMRI.

Project: “Are interactive gestures social affordances?” Collaboration with the Central European University (CEU), Budapest, Hungary (Dr Arianna Curioni, Prof Gunther Knoblich & Natalie Sebanz).
Topic: behavioral experiments on the potential perceptual facilitation of interactive gestures.
Developmental Studies
Project: “Interpersonal causality during the observation of interactions at 10 months of age”. Collaboration with the MinDevLav at University of Milano-Bicocca, Italy (Prof Chiara Turati).
Topic: behavioral experiments on the recognition of violations in interpersonal action-reaction sequences in infants.

Project: “Taking apart what bring us together: a phylosophical, cognitive and developmental approach to motor interactions”. Collaboration with the Carlo Bo Urbino University, Italy (Prof Manuela Berlingeri).
Topic: behavioral experiments on the association between action prediction, perspective-taking, and motor interaction performance along the entire life-span, from middle childhood to the old age.

Project: “Motor planning and social interactions: neuropsychological studies”. IRCCS Fondazione Santa Lucia, Rome, Italy (Prof Salvatore Maria Aglioti, Dr Loredana Canzano).
Topic: motor interaction abilities in children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
