Filomena Grazia Alvino
Alvino Filomena Grazia got a PhD in Behavioral Neuroscience from Sapienza University of Rome in February 2018. Her main PhD study focused on neural basis regulating working memory capacity. In more detail, she investigated the role of the dorsal and ventral hippocampus in working memory capacity using two new behavioral tasks set up in her laboratory . She worked on it at the Institute of Genetics and Biophysics, CNR, Naples. After the PhD, she got a position in the behavioral Facility of the Telethon Institute of Genetics and Medicine, TIGEM, Naples. During this period she worked a lot on the characterization of murine models of rare genetic diseases and the efficacy of gene therapy. In February 2019, she moved at the Functional Neuroimaging laboratory, IIT, Rovereto where she is working on the developmental trajectory of connectivity aberrations in 22q11DS, the most consistent genetic lesion associated to Schizophrenia, within a translational study funded by National Institute of Health.
