Next year, Ambra Ferrari will move to CIMeC (University of Trento) to study the origins of multimodal communication and symbolic cognition in preverbal infants. Using a combination of EEG and multivariate decoding techniques, her project will be the first to directly decode the baby brain and establish a direct quantitative comparison with the adult brain to verify whether the two share a common cross-modal conceptual space, essential for exchanging meanings before and beyond spoken language.
Ambra says: 'I am deeply honored and grateful to the European Commission for funding my project. I owe to senior colleagues who shared their advice, and to my supervisors who taught me a lot along the way.'
