Paolo Garlasco

Paolo received his Bachelor's Degree in Philosophy from the University of Turin, Italy, and his double Master's degree in Cognitive Science/Cognitive Neuroscience from the University of Milan, Italy and Maastricht University, The Netherlands. He joined SISSA in november 2013 as a PhD candidate in Cognitive Neuroscience. His current interests involve the investigation of the framing effect on food choice and the neural correlates of risk perception and reward. He uses a multidimensional approach involving cross-modal stimulations (i.e., visual-olfactive), physiological measures and funtional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI).

Paolo loves music and those marvelous sunsets from the balcony of his office.

His favorite dish is baccalà mantecato, which is just beyond words.
