Carlotta Cogoni is an associate researcher working at IBEB. She graduated in Experimental Biology at the University of Cagliari in 2010, obtained a Master in Neuroscience at the University of Trieste in 2012, and she completed a Ph.D. in Cognitive Neuroscience at the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA) in Trieste in 2017. Her research focuses on the perceptual, cognitive, affective and neural process of sexual objectification (e.g., analytic/configural perceptual process, sexual objectification, neural correlates of empathy). She is currently extending the social neuroscience research interest to another aspect of social cognition: the oxytocin and testosterone systems’ contribution to social cognition.
