About Simone Gastaldon

Graduated in Linguistics at the University of Padua with an experimental thesis on the interface between language and numerical cognition, he is currently a PhD student in Psychological Sciences at the same university. His research project focuses on how the linguistic-cognitive system generates predictions about future linguistic stimuli while we listen and understand sentences and speeches., and the possible links with the cognitive processes underlying linguistic production. To do this, he studies the neural dynamics through electroencephalography both in fluent speakers and in adults with stuttering.. Previously he was a member of the Cognitive Biology of Language group at the University of Barcelona, working on the "self-domestication hypothesis" in the evolution of Homo Sapiens. some previous studies have shown systematic changes in this frequency when a participant had to listen to speech - understanding (some previous studies have shown systematic changes in this frequency when a participant had to listen to speech - understanding, some previous studies have shown systematic changes in this frequency when a participant had to listen to speech - understanding) and amateur photography (and amateur photography, and amateur photography). and amateur photography. and amateur photography 2016, and amateur photography, and amateur photography, and amateur photography. and amateur photography: and amateur photography.

Neanderthaliani geni: a non-silent inheritance

2021-03-14T13:00:32+01:0019 September 2017|Categories: Medicine and Research|

The genomic era, started in 2001 with the completion of the sequencing of the human genome, opened new avenues for research on the evolutionary history of organisms. The field of genomics has since seen continuous technical advancements, It is in the 2010 it was possible to obtain a first "draft" (then improved) of the Homo Neanderthalensis genome, an extinct human species that lived among the 200.000 e i 40.000 Years ago. In 2010 in addition, a new "relative" is added to our evolutionary tree, with the discovery of Denisova's Homo, lived between 70.000 e i 40.000 Years ago. […]

Rebuilding lost brains

Often neuroscientists and have not wondered if the brains of leading scientific and intellectual figures in human history had something special, something different from the average. Some controversial studies, for example, have been done on the brain of Albert Einstein, whose remains are kept at the National Museum of Health and Medicine, vicino a Washington, D.C. Reconstruction of the brain of Descartes (Copyright C. Philip et al. Journal of the Neurological Sciences 378, (15 July 2017) © Elsevier B.V) In a study published in the Journal of the Neurological Sciences, a group of French scientists went so far [...]

From birds to bats: new animal models for the genetics of language

Human language is still today one of the most complex aspects of cognition to study and understand. What are the biological bases that allow a child to acquire at least one language only by being exposed to it? When did this ability emerge in the human species? Which genes and molecular processes are involved? How the competence of a language is implemented at the neural level? These are some of the questions that linguists have, psychologists, biology, paleoanthropologists and neuroscientists have been asking themselves for at least half a century [1]. In the second half of the 90s in some members of a British family, the so-called "KE family", one was identified [...]
