Silvia holds a bachelor degree in Biological Sciences (University of Urbino), a master degree in Experimental and Applied Biology (University of Pavia) and a PhD in Integrative Biomedical Research, curriculum Systems Physiology (University of Milan).
Techniques: transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS), Electromyography (EMG),
Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (MRS).
Research field: study of neural structures involved in anticipatory postural organization; role of cerebellum in postural control during gait initiation in children with cerebellar disorders; investigation of neural connectivity and compensatory mechanisms in patients with cerebellar dysfunctions; characterization of cerebellar metabolites in cognitive areas by using Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy.
Letizia Casiraghi (MRI laboratory) Post-Doc Physiology.
Letizia Casiraghi holds a degree in Psychology (University of Pavia) and a specialization in Experimental Psychology (University of Pavia). She prepared her master thesis in collaboration with the Center for Mind/Brain Sciences (CIMeC, University of Trento). She obtained her PhD in Psychology on multimodal MRI and Alzheimer Disease.
- Techniques: Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), functional MRI (task-related fMRI, resting state fMRI) and Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS).
- Research field: analysis of the dynamical properties of functional connectivity (FC) in resting state networks (RSNs) in both healthy and pathological subjects (Alzheimer Disease and Autism Spectrum Disorder), cerebellar role in cognitive functions.
