Biographical Information

I have completed my five years degree in Experimental Psychology (MSc equivalent of Italy) at University of Florence, defending my thesis in February 2008. The research project of my thesis, still supervised by Prof. Stefano Baldassi, focuses onto the influence of reward in modulating low-level visual perception (i.e. sensory thresholds for discrimination of simple features) when attention is engaged in a concurrent, highly demanding task.

I started my PhD on December 2008 under the supervision of Guillaume Masson PhD and Pascal Mamassian PhD at Institut de Neurosciences Cognitives de la Mediterranee in Marseille. Here I investigate how motion information is pooled across different MT spatio-temporal channels to reconstruct speed information. The characteristic of my research is to integrate results gotten through the Ocular Following Response recording with the results gotten by psychophysics task, to understand better how the visual system analyzes the information and subsequently uses it to do behavioral task.
