Anna D‘Urso

Anna obtained her Bachelor Degree in Biology at the University of Naples Federico II, and her Master Degree in Neuroscience at the University of Trieste. She joined the L2R lab at SISSA as a Master student doing ERPs on the visual identification of complex words. Then she spent 6 months at Exeter, UK, working on attentional processes using EEG under the supervision of Aureliu Lavric. She then came back to SISSA for a Research Assistantship, during which she worked on statistical learning and visual word identification in children using eye-tracking.

Anna is currently helping Davide and Roberto on a series of behavioural and MEG experiments with sighted and blind participants, addressing the role of perceptual experience in the representation of word meaning.
