Regina Gregori Grgič

PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience and Philosophy of Mind

Regina Gregori Grgič graduated with honours in Cognitive Neuroscience in 2009 and received her PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience and Philosophy of Mind from the Università Vita-Salute San Raffaele (Milan, Italy) in 2016.

From 2010 to 2019, she was a university tutor at the Department of Psychology of the Vita-Salute San Raffaele university, teaching laboratory lessons in the Courses of Psychology of Perception, Methods of Experimental Psychology, Psychobiology of Consciousness, Methods of Psychophysiology, Applied Cognitive Psychology, Neurocomputational Models and Laboratory of Cognitive Neuroscience.

Her main research interests concern various aspects of Cognitive Neuroscience and Perception: the visual system, detection and discrimination processes, steady-state visual evoked potentials, motion perception, perceptual awareness, visuospatial attention, mental imagery, eye movements, multisensory integration and multiple implementations of Brain -Computer Interface.

The primary aim of her latest studies is to restore communication to those “Completely Locked-in” patients, affected by a syndrome through which their still functioning minds are essentially imprisoned in their completely paralysed bodies, unable to communicate with the external world (as in the late stage of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis).
