From a neuroscientific point of view, I am interested in affective neurosciences and mathematical cognition, where I am studying the impact of mathematical anxiety so in mental arithmetics as well as in pure working memory tasks. I am also working with neurofeedback, and it's potential application in neurovascular diseases. From a methodological perspective, my main research interests are based mostly on human connectivity, where I am currently investigating the connectivity phenotypes of personality using fMRI. I am also interested in graph theoretical modeling of human's brain, as well as the modulation introduced in brain networks either by affective and/or cognitive stimuli or under pathological circumstances.
