My previous research experience was mainly focused on the topic of joint actions. Together with my colleagues, I investigated the physiological and neural underpinnings of motor coordination in healthy individuals and in apraxic patients. In this context, I used a variety of recording (ECG, SCR, kinematics) and stimulation techniques (tDCS, tACS and TMS). Currently, I am interested in the use of immersive virtual reality as a means of promoting social change through the embodiment of civic heroes. I am also interested in studying the social variables that affect the decision to deceive and in exploring the way in which the brain and the body process and respond to errors.
