I’m a post-doctoral research fellow interested in music and neuroscience.
I investigate the neurobiological foundation of the remarkable human sensitivity to auditory structures, as those underlying music. Much of my work has focused on how humans learn and memorise structured patterns, and how these may guide and facilitate musicians' actions during music playing. Currently, I am investigating the evolutionary origin of musical patterns sensitivity and the neural mechanisms that support conserved abilities. My research combines behavioural, electrophysiological and neuroimaging methods.
