Marco Sandrini received his Ph.D. degree (2003–2005) in neuroscience from Department of Neurological and Vision Sciences, University of Verona, Verona, Italy, with the title “The role of prefrontal cortex in memory and executive control processes: evidences from rTMS.” He also obtained the M.S. degree in general and experimental psychology from University of Padova, Padova, Italy. Since 2009 till now, he has been working as Research Fellow at Human Cortical Physiology and Stroke Neurorehabilitation Section, National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD, USA. From 2001 to 2003, he was Research Assistant at Cognitive Neuroscience Unit, IRCCS S. Giovanni di Dio-Fatebenefratelli, Brescia, Italy. His research interests include lateralization of prefrontal cortex functions (i.e., monitoring, manipulation, integration, and inhibition), working memory, episodic memory, and motor learning (i.e., visuomotor adaptation), action observation, number processing and calculation, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS): from bench to bed side, and combining TMS or tDCS with neuroimaging (fMRI and MEG).
