Personal profile

Research profile

My research focus is to understand how sensory feedback is processed in normal or pathological situations, and to identify and treat sensory-motor impairments and disorders. I have been working on several projects investigating, for instance, the role of crossed spinal reflexes in interlimb coordination, the use of nociceptive withdrawal reflex in stroke rehabilitation and the effect of neurofeedback on musculoskeletal pain. Recently, I became passionate about methods to improve diagnosis and interventions for children with sensory motor impairments, including Sensory Processing Disorders, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Cerebral Palsy. I am currently working on the development of a protocol to identify and assess the mechanism behind sensory processing anomalies in children with ASD and ADHD.
