Francesca Vitale

I am an expert in performing single-pulse TMS, paired pulse TMS and dual coil TMS to assess motor excitability and effective connectivity using motor-evoked potentials (MEPs).

Moreover, over the past year, I acquired great knowledge on repetitive TMS (rTMS) and methods to localize non-motor areas using neuronavigation systems (i.e., BRAINSIGHT system) and craniometrical methods.

My research interests focus on the comprehension of the neurophysiological basis of language, that is, how the human brain processes the semantic characteristic of words and sentences.
