PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience

All PhD projects proposed are evaluated by the Management Committee to ensure that they meet the All the proposed research projects are reviewed by the Board of Directors of the PhD Course, in order  to ensure that they meet the requirements for a three-year PhD thesis.

The research projects of the Doctorate are based on the use of laboratories with advanced technologies - see below-  that allow the Doctoral students to have a high level of access to research facilities required by the individual projects.

The laboratories are the following:

  • Structural and functional MRI imaging laboratory
  • Molecular imaging laboratory (PET, PET/MRI)
  • Laboratory of neurophysiology
  • Neurocognitive rehabilitation laboratory
  • Laboratory of neurophysiology of sleep
  • Laboratory of Action, Perception, Cognition

It is also possible to collaborate with research centres of the University (Centre for Neurolinguistics and Psycholinguistics, Interfaculty Center for Gender Studies), as well as to develop  specific research projects requiring access to  neurological and psychiatric patients, including subjects with personality and developmental disorders.
