Personal profile

Research interests

My research activity focuses on the cardiovascular and neurophysiological response during physical exercise. More precisely I investigated the impact of various diseases on group III/IV muscle afferents activity and how these diseases contribute to abnormalities of the cardiovascular response during exercise. Furthermore, I performed a series of experiment to study role of group III/IV muscle afferents in the development of central fatigue.

Recently, my research mainly focuses on the application of non-invasive brain stimulation techniques such as transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) and transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to study how the central nervous system is involved in exercise regulation and in the development of exercise induced fatigue.

The main goal of my research is to understand the neurophysiological and psychological mechanisms causing fatigue during physical exercise and how this knowledge can be applied to improve the life quality of healthy adults and populations affected by cardiovascular and neurological disorders.
