Falling Walls Lab MSCA 2021

Congratulations to our BoostUrCAreer fellow, Giulia Rocco, winner of the Falling Walls Lab MSCA 2021, with her project "Breaking the wall of cerebellar neuroscience!"

Giulia had 3 min pitch to present her doctoral project: the recent paradigm shift in cerebellar neuroscience calls for the introduction of mundane technologies to fully unravel the role of the cerebellum in disorders like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s or ataxia. A novel approach comprising of optical (fNIRS) and electrophysiological (EEG) measurements can be used as a flexible diagnostic and monitoring tool and alternative to fMRI.
