Maria Elide Vanutelli graduated in Clinical and Developmental Psychology and Neuropsychology at Bicocca University of Milan. She took her PhD in Psychology. She currently is Post-doc Researcher at the University of Milan. Her interests concern social and affective neuroscience and her main research curiosity refer to biological and phylogenetic roots of emotions, empathy and prosocial behaviors, with special interest for human-animal interactions. Her most recent works concern affective processing within a multimethod approach, as well as mirroring mechanisms with respect to intra and inter-species interactions. She gained well-established expertise in: biosignal recording, integration, and processing (EEG, autonomic indices, fNIRS, signal source localization) and hyperscanning analysis during competition and cooperation. She is also lecturer at Master in “Clinical Neurosciences: neuropsychological and neuromotor assessment, diagnosis and rehabilitation”.
