Our broad field of interest is the neurophysiology of sensory system in humans. We are particularly interested on the functioning of the somatosensory and nociceptive systems, to understand how somatosensory stimuli give rise to bodily experiences and how these experiences are modulated by different factors (for example by attention and body posture). By investigating the somatosensory system we aim to understand the general principles that determine how the brain reacts to external inputs.
