Michele Scandola is a researcher of  psychobiology and physiological psychology at the Department of Human Sciences. His research activities were focused on cross-modal visuo-haptic perception in virtual enviroment via psychophysics techniques and robotic tools, leargning processes in VR, body image and validation of questionnaires.

During his 3-years-long Ph.D. (at the University “La Sapienza” OF Rome, final mark: with honors) his research interests were focused on body and space representation in spinal cord injured people.

In that period He could improve his methodologic and statistic knowledge, in particular linear mized models and Bayesian statistics, VR enviroment and electrophysiological recordings.

Nowaday He is collaborting with some European research groups, several spinal cord units and rehabilitation wards.
