Marco Ninghetto, Msc
Visiting Student/Inter

About me:

I obtained my master degree in Neuropsychology at the University of Turin (Italy). My master course, called “Body and Mind sciences”, aimed at creating a link between clinical psychological sciences and scientific research. During my studies in Italy, I attended to an internship based on Brain Stimulation techniques, mainly transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS). During a research stay in Universite’ Catholique de Louvain (Brussels), I participate, for my master thesis, to the project called “Rating the intensity of a laser stimulus modulated laser evoked potentials”.

Research interests:

Brain stimulation techniques, brain plasticity, and cognitive psychology, neuropsychology.
