Anna Cattani, PhD

Postdoctoral Researcher


My ongoing research projects lie at the intersection between Mathematics and Neuroscience and aim at investigating the neurophysiological mechanisms that allow consciousness to emerge. The tools encompass computational modeling together with bifurcation theory analysis and data analysis. I joined the Wisconsin Institute for Sleep and Consciousness at the University of Wisconsin – Madison under the supervision of Giulio Tononi in 2019, after a two-years postdoc at the “integrated ThalamoCortical function Research Group” led by Marcello Massimini at the University of Milan (Italy).

Research Interests: computational modeling, bifurcation analysis, consciousness.
