Dr. Luca Cocchi (lab alumnus)

Position: Former Research Fellow (2011-2016)

Email: l.cocchi@uq.edu.au

Luca left us in February 2016 to take up a position at the QIMR Berghofer medical research institute.

Research while in the Mattingley Lab

I'm broadly interested in studying the anatomical structure and functional brain dynamics supporting the brain capacity of integrating information, in health and disease.

Research interests

  • Network science
  • Connectomics
  • Neuroimaging
  • Biological psychiatry
