Roberta’s research interests include the use of non-invasive brain stimulation techniques, such as transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS)and transcutaneous vagus nerve stimulation (tVNS), to explore the neural mechanisms of social decision-making and cognitive control in the human brain. She also enjoy investigating the role of specific factors, as for example drugs use, food supplementation, environmental factors and individual differences in modulating cognitive performance.
