READ BIOGRAPHY  

Giovanni Frighetto obtained his bachelor degree in Psychological Sciences and Techniques in 2013 at the University of Verona discussing a thesis entitled “Visual Processes of Learning of Bodily Actions: Short and Long-Term Retention”. He then moved to the University of Padova and in 2015 he received his master degree in Neuroscience and Neuropsychological Rehabilitation with a thesis aimed to study the effects of the blue-enriched light therapy on circadian disturbances in patients with cirrhosis and primary biliary cirrhosis. In 2016, during the post-lauream internship in the Neurophysiology and Neurobiology Laboratory led by Professor Aram Megighian he approached lower level aspects of neurosciences starting to investigate neural processes in the organism model Drosophila melanogaster. In the same year he further attended the “The Toolbox for Investigating the Function of Neural Circuits” course of the CSNII School on Neurotechniques directed by Professor Stefano Vassanelli. In October he started a three-years PhD program in the School of Psychology under the supervision of Professor Umberto Castiello and collaborating with the Lab of Professor Aram Megighian. His PhD program is aimed at understanding the high-neural mechanisms underlying motor and action phenomena in flies.
