barone-gaiaMy main research interests are cognitive psychology and cognitive neuroscience. Specifically, I am very interested in the field of decision-making and neuro-economics. I have been working in the field of temporal discounting and intertemporal decision making using multiple methodological approaches – such as resting state functional connectivity MRI and process tracing methods, such as mouse movements’ kinematics.
I am also very interested in the clinical applications of these research questions to specific clinical populations wherein decision-making mechanism become dysfunctional due to impaired reward valuation and/or cognitive control issues.
In the Department of Business and Management of the LUISS Guido Carli University I am studying a particular class of organizational behavior – organizational routines – and their cognitive and neuro-functional counterparts. We aim at investigating the micro-foundations of organizational routines – how they are developed, maintained and changed – as well as the neuro-biological mechanism mediating their emergence.
