Roberto holds a PhD in Anthropology and Epistemology of Complexity from the University of Bergamo (with significant spells at the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics in Nijmegen). He held postdoctoral positions at the New School for Social Research in New York, at the University of Milano Bicocca, Italy, and at the Center for Mind/Brain Sciences (CIMeC) in Trento, Italy.
His research interests are language processing and evolution, consciousness, abstract thinking and the cognitive neuroscience of blindness.
Yangwen got his PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience at the Beijing Normal University.
His main interest is to investigate how does the brain, as an electrical and biological machine, represent concepts and construct thoughts.
Lorenzo obtained his Master Degree in Developmental and Educational Psychology at the University of Padova. For his PhD he moved to the University of Salzburg where he worked with different neurocognitive methods (EEG, MEG, fMRI, tDCS) to investigate the neural underpinnings of visual word recognition.
He's main interests are language, visual spatial attention and the cognitive neuroscience of blindness.
Léo earned his master’s degree in Cognitive Science at the Ecole Normale Supérieure and obtained his PhD in Cognitive Science at Sorbonne Paris Cité University. He held then a postdoctoral position in the Barsalou Lab at the University of Glasgow.
His main research interests are conceptual processing, language, memory, health behaviors, and spatial cognition.
