Podcast "How animals’ brain works?" by our Francesca Lanzarini

“How animals’ brain works?” is a podcast about neuroscience and what it means to work with different animal models. Recorded and advertised thanks to the SciComm Award from Animal Research Tomorrow. Available on Spotify, Spreaker and Google Podcast.



Post-doc and PhD positions available for working with non-human primates

The work of our group consists in developing, leveraging and combining forefront behavioral and neurophysiological techniques for an ethologically relevant and, as much as possible, unconstrained investigation of primate brain.

Understanding the brain during natural behavior is crucial to achieve ecologically valid discoveries about neural circuit functions and disfunctions in neurological and neuropsychiatric diseases. 

To achieve these goals, in addition to state-of-the-art neurophysiological methods, we employ state-of-the art techniques for recording several neurons simultaneously with wireless technologies, while video monitoring the animals’ free behavior in both individual and social settings with multi-camera systems.
