OFFER DESCRIPTION

The present project aims to study the functional role of the Frontal Aslant Tract (FAT) in healthy participants. We will evaluate the effects of tractography-guided, neuronavigated transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) on motor, linguistic and executive functions. Behavioral measures will include motion tracking of upper limb kinematics during voluntary movement and analysis of speech. The research fellow will be in charge of analyzing tractography, performing TMS and analyzing the kinematics and speech data, interpretating the results and contributing to the writing scientific papers.
