Simone Rossi, MD, PhD, Professor of Human Physiology. I am also Neurologist and Neurophysiologist, currently leading the Brain Investigation & Neuromodulation Lab (Si-BIN Lab) at the Department of Medicine, Surgery and Neuroscience, Neurology and Clinical Neurophysiology Unit, University of Siena, where I also lead the Parkinson’s disease clinical activity.

I also have a national full professorship habilitation in Neurology.

Author of the popular scientific book “Il Cervello Elettrico” [The Electric Brain], Raffaello Cortina Ed., September 2020.

International leader in the field of noninvasive brain stimulation where my contributions include: technical developments (one patent for a new sham coil for TMS); use and developments of noninvasive brain stimulation techniques (TMS, tDCS, tACS) as neuroimaging procedures in cognitive neuroscience, with a focus on memory, therapeutic neuromodulatory tools in neuropsychiatry, and neuroehnancement (including ethical issues); Individuation of neurophysiological markers of psychiatric diseases;  noninvasive investigation of neural plasticity mechanisms and brain connectivity, studied with EEG, TMS-EEG combination and rsFMRI. I also help the development of wearable robotic devices (in collaboration with Prof. Domenico Prattichizzo) to improve human health, for stroke people, Parkinson’s disease patients and tinnitus sufferers (three patents).
