Robots make people hear voices
Researchers from LNCO developed a robotic procedure able to make healthy participants hear voices when they were in fact hearing only noise. Their work garnered worldwide attention, including a notable feature in The New York Times and the Swiss National Science Foundation.
Sara Stampacchia was selected as Neuro-X Postdoctoral Fellow!
Congratulations to Sara Stampacchia, who was selected as this year’s Neuro X Postdoctoral Fellow! This new program at Neuro-X will allow Sara Stampacchia to work on a new exciting project entitled “Technology-based antipsychotic therapy in Parkinson’s disease” aiming to reduce the occurrence of hallucinations in Parkinson’s Disease patients, thanks to an innovative approach combining robotics and real-time fMRI neurofeedback. Candidates were selected on the basis of their CV and quality of their proposal.
