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 of the Italian Institute of Anthropology and of the Italian Institute of Human Paleontology, 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, eventually stepping into ethnic music with didgeridoo and percussions. I have been studying wooden flutes (quenas) for ten years. And ukulele. I mainly play folk, jazz, blues, and tango. And I dance tango, wherever.

Here a list of all my blogs.

  • Neandertal Cognition Offered Online Now at the Center for Cognitive Archaeology @ UCCS
    How did Neandertals experience their world? How did their cognition and culture differ from ours? Were they pragmatic? Callous or cold-hearted? Did they love, were they charitable? Were they tough? Dogmatic? Xenophobic? Join Professor Frederick L. Coolidge for our online course in Neandertal Cognition. Together, we will explore the mind of some of our recent […]

  • Frontal bone, parietal bone
    The skull provides a protection for the brain, and thus its composition and structure are of interest in biomechanics, for biomedical engineers and … for the Army too. Cranial vault bones consist of three layers of bone tissue – the inner and outer tables that are made of cortical bone tissue, and the cancellous bone […]

  • 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 […]
