Margherita Giamundo was awarded a 2023 ILCB post-doc fellowship to work with Pascal Belin (INT), in collaboration with Etienne Thoret (PRISM, INT). Her project will address the question of the encoding of voice identity in the primate brain, focusing on the variation in spiking activity of voice-selective neuronal populations of the temporal cortex. Margherita will use an fMRI-guided electrophysiological approach, thanks to the expertise acquired during her PhD and post-doctorate at the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology of the Sapienza University in Rome, and then at the Institut de Neurosciences de la Timone in Marseille. Her project will provide new insights on the neural principles underlying the representation of individual identity in the primate brain.
