Maria-Laura Filippetti: American Psychological Association (APA) Dissertation Award

Dr Maria Laura Filippetti, post-doctoral researcher at the Lab of Action and Body, was awarded the prestigious American Psychological Association (APA) Dissertation Award from the Division of Developmental Psychology for her PhD thesis.

This was the committee’s verdict : “Your dissertation research was truly stunning, being comprised of not one, but multiple interconnected studies that inform understanding of infant body perception. The award committee was particularly impressed with your use of functional near infrared spectroscopy to show that common brain mechanisms support infant and adult cortical activation during processing of body-related stimuli. Your dissertation rose to the top even among other very impressive dissertations that were considered for the award, and we are all delighted that you were selected.”

Congratulations Maria Laura!
