Luciana Falbo

Luciana Falbo graduated in Psychology of Communication from the Catholic University of Milan. Keen on the mechanisms that rule the brain functioning, she first joined Salvatore Campanella’s team in Brussels and Louvain-La-Neuve and worked on emotions, empathy, depression and gambling behaviors by means of ERPs. Currently, she’s a PhD student at Maastricht University in the Department of Psychopharmacology and Neuropsychology, running a research on the neural mechanisms underlying judgment of learning (JOL) and meta-memory and studying brain’s functional connectivity through f-MRI.
