Dettaglio docente

Mercoledì 16.30-17.30 in dipartimento, previo appuntamento tramite email (alessio.toraldo@unipv.it) almeno una settimana prima.

Alessio Toraldo is Lecturer at the Department of Brain and Behavioural Sciences (Psychology Section), where he has been teaching Methodology in Neuropsychology (now Theory of Research in Neuroscience) and Anatomo-Physiological Bases of Mental Processes since 2004. He graduated in Padova University (1996) and obtained a PhD in Psychology in Pavia (2000). He visited the Psychology Department, University of St Andrews (1999) as part of his research activity towards his PhD. He was granted an Assegno di Ricerca (2000-2004) for research on the parietal lobe in the Cognitive Neuroscience Sector of the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA-ISAS), Trieste.
