Luigi Cuturi was born in Catania (Italy) in 1986. He studied Psychology and received his master's degree from the University of Padua (Italy) in 2009. After one year internship at the Department of General Psychology in Padua, he started a Ph.D. under the supervision of Dr. Paul MacNeilage in Munich (Germany) at the German Vertigo Center. He focused his research on investigating visual and vestibular sensory contribution to self-motion perception. During this time, he also spent 3 months as visiting researcher in Prof. Barry Seemungal lab at the British Imperial College in London (England).

In 2015, Luigi received his Ph.D. degree in Neuroscience from the Graduate School of Systemic Neurosciences (GSN) of the Ludwig Maxmilian University (LMU-Munich).
