Ignacio Arganda-Carreras (Madrid, 1980) is a European PhD in Computer Engineering and Telecommunications by the Autonomous University of Madrid and holds a BSc in Computer Engineering from the same university. He took postdoctoral studies at the department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology from 2009 to 2013 and at the Jean-Pierre Bourgin Institute of the Institut National de la Recherche Agronomique, Versailles, from 2013 to 2015.
During his doctorate studies he carried out research stays at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in Berkeley (California, 2002-2004), at the Centre for Machine Perception of the Technical University of Prague (2005) and at the Applied Medical Research Centre of the University of Navarra in Pamplona (2006). He has worked as a consultant for the Max Planck Institute of Cellular Biology and Genetics in Dresden (2009) and for the Institute of Neuroinformatics in Zurich (2009).
Since September 2015 he is an Ikerbasque Research Fellow at the Department of Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence of the University of the Basque Country.
Dr Bagley completed a PhD at The University of Sydney in 2001. She was a C.J Martin Fellow from 2001 to 2006. During this time she was a postdoctoral fellow in the laboratory of Professor Gary Westbrook at the Vollum Institute (Oregon, USA) and at the Pain Management Research Institute (University of Sydney).
Dr Bagley began developing her research laboratory at the Brain and Mind Institute (2010-2011) and then moved to Pharmacology in 2011.
Anthony “Tony” Barnhart received his Ph.D. in Cognitive Science from Arizona State University in 2013, where he began his graduate career with the intention of being a language researcher. To this end, he has published research examining the processes underlying handwritten word perception, a domain that has been largely ignored by psychologists. However, Tony is also a part-time professional magician with over 20 years of performing experience. Magicians are informal cognitive scientists with their own hypotheses about the mind. Tony empirically tests these novel hypotheses and introduces magical methodologies into the laboratory to increase the ecological validity of experimental studies of attention and perception.
Andrea Becchetti received his academic degrees at the University of Milan. He then spent research sojourns at the University of Florence, the Emory University (USA), the University of Newcastle upon Tyne (UK) and the International School for Advanced Studies, in Trieste (IT). His research concerns the cholinergic and orexin modulation of synaptic transmission in the prefrontal cortex, the pathogenesis of sleep-related epilepsy and the role of ion channels in cell adhesion and differentiation.
Cristina is Associate Professor at the Psychology Department, University of Turin, and Senior Researcher at the Robotics, Brain and Cognitive Sciences Department, Italian Institute of Technology, Genova. After studying philosophy at the University of Turin, in 2001 she joined a PhD Program in Cognitive Science. She became researcher at the University of Turin in 2006. She is interested in the cognitive and neural mechanisms underlying motor cognition.
