Curriculum

Silvia’s major research interest concerns the study of perception and awareness in healthy participants and brain-damaged patients with visual field defects or neglect. In her research, she uses several techniques: behavior, electrophysiology (EEG), neuroimaging (fNIRS) and direct brain stimulation (TMS and intraoperative electrocortical mapping).

Research groups

Perioperative Neurophysiology in Neurosurgery
The research group aims to develop new protocols to identify and maintain neurological functions, in particular with regards to the motor and visual systems. This will be obtained through transcranial magnetic stimulation studies in healthy subjects or patients, as well as intraoperative monitoring/mapping in neurosurgical patients
