As cognitive neuroscientist and philosopher, Benedetta’s multidisciplinary work aims to study the relationship between brain activity and subjective experience. To this end, her research combines neuroimaging at different spatio-temporal scales and phenomenological sampling, benefitting from the complementary information that different levels of analysis provide. She applies these methods in a range of topics including (dis)connectedness, consciousness and cognition.
