I was born in Rome in 1972. Since 2007 I am Research Group Leader in Paleoneurology at the National Research Centre for Human Evolution in Burgos, Spain. See our Lab Blog: The Skull Box.

I got a University Degree in Biology and a PhD in Animal Biology, both at the University La Sapienza, Rome. My university career was mainly oriented in zoology, but the final experimental thesis was in human ecology. The PhD was on human paleoneurology, based on digital anatomy and computed morphometrics. I got post-doc grants in paleoneurology and human anatomy. I was curator of osteological collections in museums of zoology and anthropology. I am member and councillor of the Italian Institute of Anthropology, and Adjoint Professor in Paleoneurology at the Center for Cognitive Archaeology, Colorado University.

I play and study guitar since I was thirteen. I played bass guitar in hard rock and progressive rock bands, then I moved to a jazz academy for some years, eventually stepping into ethnic music with didgeridoo and percussions. Finally, I met the Andean quenas, and began playing and studying wooden flutes. And ukulele. I mainly play folk, jazz, blues, and tango. And I dance tango, wherever.

Here a list of all my blogs.

  • Microgravity and sensorimotor function
    Space missions can have adverse effects on astronauts, such as the already-mentioned vision deterioration and cognitive impairment. Spending a long time on space can also impact sensorimotor function. Koppelmans et al. have recently investigated the influence of microgravity environment on sensorimotor performance and brain structure. They conducted a longit […]

  • Researchers develop non-invasive deep brain stimulation method
    Researchers at MIT have developed a new method of electrically stimulating deep brain tissues without opening the skullSince 1997, more than 100,000 Parkinson’s Disease patients have been treated with deep brain stimulation (DBS), a surgical technique that involves the implantation of ultra-thin wire electrodes. The implanted device, sometimes referred to as […]
