At the end of my studies in Physics at the University of Bologna, I focused my research interests on complex systems and how information processing is achieved in the mind along with its neural correlates in the brain. Neural network dynamics and biologically detailed computational modelling became the main focuses of my studies framed within laboratories where electrophysiology, genetics, and animal behavior were also explored. Now I combine experience gained in these disciplines with neuromorphic engineering and theoretical neural network dynamics and learning to explore the emergence of cognitive functions in the cortex of the brain. Using the theoretical framework of Networks of Relations, I study how neuronal ensembles in the brain cooperate to take decisions leading from goal, internal state, and sensory information, to action.
