Lorenzo Vignali

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 (with Florian Hutzler). HIs main interests are language, visual spatial attention and the cognitive neuroscience of blindness. 

Lorenzo joined the lab as a post-doctoral fellow in September 2017. He's part of a joint project between SISSA (with Davide) and the Center for Mind/Brain Sciences (CIMeC, with Roberto Bottini); he's mostly based at the latter. In this research project he studies language processing in sighted and blind people.
