 Research interests

I'm interested in Computational Neuroscience and in Statistical and Biological Physics.

In particular cortical dynamics, phase coding, learning and plasticity,

complex systems, glasses and neural networks.

PROJECT :  I'm local coordinator of the Salerno unit of the project INFN-TO61-BIOPHYS


BRAIN: Memory, movement, cognition and perception arise from the collective
activity of neurons within cortical circuits and across large-scale
systems of the brain. While the causes of single neuron spikes have
been understood for decades, the processes that support collective
neural behavior in large-scale cortical systems are less clear and
have been at times the subject of contention. Modeling large-scale
brain activity with the tools of statistical physics is the topic of
my research.
