Claudia Scorolli is a Senior Research Fellow. She obtained her PhD in Philosophy of Language, Linguistics and Cognitive Sciences at the University of Bologna. She is also a Psychotherapist, specialized in Psychoanalytic and Psychodramatic treatments at the Mosaico School (MIUR). Her research has been focused on grounding of language in sensorimotor processes, as well as on language as a tool which modifies human's way to interact with the world. Her experimental work extends to the study of the possibilities for physical/social interactions offered by the current interactive context – i.e. physical and social affordances. Her scientific interest includes the investigation of cultural factors – e.g. specific religious practices – influencing cognitive and emotional processes. Her current work – at the interface between cognitive neurosciences and clinical psychology – is guided by a twofold aim: at the theoretical level, testing embodied and grounded theories of cognition in normal and abnormal aging; at the applicative level, exploring new clinical interventions in the field of neurocognitive disorders, as psychosocial interventions for people with dementia. She uses behavioral paradigms (e.g., RTs measurements), kinematic methods (e.g., reach-to-grasp movement analysis), electrophysiological techniques (EEG), subjective-qualitative methods (e.g., questionnaires) and occasionally brain stimulation (TMS) and non-invasive brain imaging (fMRI) techniques.
