Research







The research is aimed at exploiting multi-dimensional and multi-modal signal processing, computer vision and machine learning for neuroimaging and medical imaging and modeling of cognitive processes. In neuroimaging the main topics that we are currently facing are brain tissues microstructural analysis through signal reconstruction models from diffusion MRI, investigation of structural and functional connectivity based on fMRI, ASL and EEG acquisitions, multi-view pattern recognition methods  for segmentation and classification of human tissues different pathological conditions (stroke, epilepsy, tumors).
