Sara Boccadoro

I’m a neuroscience master student at the University of Trieste, in Italy. My main research interests focus on cognitive neuroscience, in particular on emotions, cognition and affective disorders.

Given my biological background, I am interested in the biological basis of mental processes and brain functions and in the interplay between biology and psychology. I want to learn the techniques to study these fascinating aspects.

I am in Ghent for my internship under the supervision of Dr. Sven Müller and I will perform analysis on Resting-state fMRI after early trauma.

Outside of the research field, I enjoy listening to music, going to concerts and spending time with my friends.
