My research focuses on the methods for instrumental assessment of the neurorehabilitation path and outcome after acquired brain injury (ABI) in pediatric and developmental age. I have been working on cohorts with severe disorders of consciousness (vegetative state and minimally conscious state), as well as on children in need of motor, memory and attentive rehabilitation after moderate ABI. My interests include the monitoring of the restructuring of consciousness at the exit from coma and the multimodal prediction of outcome and prognosis through modelling, including machine learning. Specifically, I am interested in the contribution of magnetic resonance imaging, gait and upper limb movement analysis to the definition of response to rehabilitation treatment. Since 2016, I have been expert member of the Special Interest Group on Disorders of Consciousness (DOC-SIG) Diagnosis and Prognosis Subgroup of the International Brain Injury Association (IBIA).
