Zaira Romeo was born in Italy in 1989.

She is a psychologist, with expertise in neuropsychology and electrophysiology.

She received her Master Degree in Neuroscience and Neuropsychological Rehabilitation at the University of Padova (Italy) in 2013.

After extensive trainings in cognitive neuroscience at the Institute for Medical Psychology and Behavioural Neurobiology (Eberhard Karls University, Tubingen – Germany) and in clinical assessment of neurological patients at the Don Calabria Neurorehabilitation Center (Verona – Italy), she obtained the Psychologist professional habilitation.

n Psychological Sciences at the University of Padova in 2018, under the supervision of Profs. Marco Zorzi and Chiara Spironelli.

During the Ph.D., she visited the Brain and Spine Institute (Paris – France) and the Laboratory of Movement Control and Neuroplasticity (KU Leuven – Belgium).

She is a member of the Computational Cognitive Neuroscience Lab (University of Padova).

Research Interests

Zaira is primarily interested in cognitive neuroscience, resting state brain activity and attention.

In particular, she studies the mechanisms underlying the brain reorganization following stroke and the consequent implications for cognitive performance by means of EEG and fMRI.

Recently, she employed a methodology to reconstruct the brain networks from EEG signals in order to: correlate patterns of intrinsic activity with behaviour and define predictive markers of functional recovery.
