BSc and MSc Students

Sara De Carlo

I obtained a M.Sc. in Neuroscience from the University La Sapienza of Rome, which awarded me with a post-lauream scholarship to work under the supervision of Bastijn van den Boom. I am interested in the neurobiological basis of motivation and compulsive behaviour. In the lab, I’m working on cognitive flexibility in a mouse model of OCD. I also had the opportunity to work on human cognition as a research assistant at the International School for Advanced Studies in Trieste, Italy.



Silvia Moreira

Hello! I’m a Masters student under the supervision of Rudolf Faust. For my internship, we’ll try to understand the striato-nigrostriatal circuits using techniques such as optogenetics and viral approaches. In my spare time, I love to travel and meet new cultures, visit museums and read.
