Maria Elide Vanutelli - Ph.D
 

Maria Elide Vanutelli graduated in Clinical and Developmental Psychology and Neuropsychology at Bicocca University of Milan. At the moment she’s a PhD Student at Catholic University of Milan. Her interests concern social and affective neuroscience and her main research curiosity refer to biological and phylogenetic roots of emotions, empathy and prosocial behaviors, with special interest for human-animal interactions. Her most recent works concern affective processing within a multimethod approach, as well as mirroring mechanisms with respect to intra and inter-species interactions. At the moment she’s dealing with hyperscanning analysis during competition and cooperation.
