Cinzia Giorgetta, PhD, is working at the Laboratory of Applied Ontology, ISTC, CNR of Trento on the project VisCoSO, since July 2012.
Previously she worked at the Neural Decision Science Lab, Department of Cognitive Science (DiSCoF) and Center for Mind/Brain Sciences (CIMeC), University of Trento, where she still collaborates. She obtained a full Degree cum laude in Psychology, University of Urbino in 2003, and a PhD in Cognitive Psychology, Psychophysiology and Personality at Sapienza, University of Rome, in 2007. In 2008 she obtained a specialization in Cognitive-Behavioral Psychotherapy at the School in Cognitive Psychotherapy (SPC).

 

Research interests

Her research activity is mainly focused on the field of Cognitive Science. She is interested at investigating the relationship between emotions and decision-making, with a particular regard for the emotion of regret. Her research interests are also focused on Neuroeconomics and on Neurocognitive mechanisms of psychopathological disorders. Along with her main areas of interest, her studies have been also focused on counterfactual reasoning, on cognitive aspects of perfectionism, human error, and spacial attention. These topics have been studied using different methodologies such as Eye-tracking, fMRI, MEG, neuropsychological testing and tested on normal and clinical populations.
