  1. Single-neuron correlates of social cognition and interaction in human cerebral cortex during awake surgeries. 
  2. The role of subcortical brain structure in social information processing through structural and functional MRI in human and non-human primates with and without intact visual cortex. 
  3. Anatomo-functional characterization of cortical and subcortical circuits involved in action observation in human and non-human primates with 7T ultra-high field MRI.
  4. Seeking for biomarkers that can predict neurodevelopmental disorders in preterm and very preterm babies: a structural/functional connectivity-based approach.
  5. Atlas of structural and functional connectivity of the vestibular network in human neonates and infants.
  6. Optimizing the chemistry of antisense oligonucleotides and their formulation in non-viral particles through a high-frequency oscillatory motion device: moving towards clinical use of RNA therapeutics for neurodevelopmental disorders. 
  7. Study of the effects of early-life stress and of the fast-acting antidepressant Ketamine in Shank2 and Shank3 mutant mice to model comorbid psychiatric symptoms in neurodevelopmental disorders. 
  8. Role of maternal exposure to psychosocial stressors during pregnancy in the aetiology of autism-spectrum disorders: characterization of a non-genetic animal model for ASD. 
  9. Therapeutic exploitation of tumor-educated macrophages for neural development and regeneration. 
  10. Advanced cellular electrophysiological and imaging approaches to tackle complexity and identify multiorgan phenotypes in channelopathies. 
  11. Software for volumetric reconstruction of neuroanatomical data from histological sections and integration with Magnetic Resonance Imaging.
