A bit about Eugenio Parise

I received my PhD in Rome at "La Sapienza" University in 2005. Then I have spent three and a half years in Leipzig, Germany, at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences, where I specialized in EEG/ERP (event related brain potentials) and NIRS (near infrared spectroscopy) techniques with young infants. I have done a second post doc in Budapest, Hungary, at the Cognitive Development Center of the Central European University, refining my theoretical and technical skills. My research interests are focused on infant development, in particular the development social cognition, with a stress on the role of ostensive communication and how it affects different cognitive process, such as attention, language development and categorization.

My Role in LuCiD

I co-supervised WP3 in phase 1, focusing on how social and referential cues interact in word learning
