Laura Marzetti

University "G.D''annunzio" Chieti, Italy


Laura Marzetti is an Assistant Professor at the Institute for Advanced Biomedical Technologies (ITAB) of the University of Chieti-Pescara Italy since 2015. She moved to the field of neuroscience after a M.S. degree in biomedical engineering (2000) at the Marche Polytechnic University (Italy) and a Ph.D. degree in applied physics (2008) at the University of Chieti-Pescara (Italy). During the Ph.D. degree (2005–2008), she had extensive training on methods for functional connectivity through MEG and EEG and she began to develop new methods in collaboration with Dr. Guido Nolte (UKE Hamburg). During her postdoc (2009–2011), she worked at the University of Chieti with Professor Maurizio Corbetta, receiving extensive training in the fields of cognitive neuroscience and brain networks. She was among the first scientists who demonstrated the existence of resting state networks with Magnetoencephalography and the frequency specificity of these networks. From 2011, she is part of the Magnetoencephalography team of the NIH funded Human Connectome Project (1U54MH091657-0, PI: David Van Essen). More recently, she became Head of the Laboratory for Methods and Models for Brain Oscillations (MAMBO) at the ITAB and received funding from the BIAL foundation for a research grant on resting state network synchronization in meditative brain states. She has coauthored more than 30 publications in peer-reviewed scientific journals, among which several are with a high-impact factor such as in PNAS and Neuron. She has also been invited speaker at prestigious research centers in Europe and has been organizer and speaker at several international conferences (e.g., Biomag, OHBM). She is Member of the Organization of Human Brain Mapping (OHBM) since 2005. Marzetti serves as a reviewer for several peer-reviewed journals and funding agencies.
