Mariangela Panniello

Visiting Postdoctoral Research Scientist

Mariangela obtained a BSc in Biomedical Sciences from the University of Bologna before focusing on Neuroscience. She then moved to Pisa, where she gained a MSc in Molecular Neurobiology and worked as a research assistant at NEST - Scuola Normale Superiore. She completed her DPhil in the Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics, under the supervision of Dr Kerry Walker and Prof Andrew King. She has worked as a Postdoctoral Researcher in the group led by Dr Michael Kohl, and is now an academic visitor, collaborating mostly with the research group led by Dr Kerry Walker.

Mariangela's main interest is sensory processing in the cerebral cortex. She investigates how stimuli from the external world, in particular sounds and touches, are processed by cortical neurons in order to give raise to perception and establish memories. To do this, she uses a range of techniques, from behavioural paradigms to in vivo two-photon calcium imaging.
