Alberto Zani

Institute of Molecular Bioimaging and Physiology of Italian National Council of Research
Italy

Research Interest:
Having wide interests, Dr. Alberto Zani is concerned with the study of mind and brain from cognitive neurosciences perspective. He investigates visuo-cognitive and affective functions of the human brain in the attempt to localize brain areas and neural networks subserving these functions, and to determine the temporal dynamics of their activation so to gain insight onto brain serial and parallel processing modes. More specifically, the investigation of neural networks for visual stimulus perception and categorization as well as for the control of endogenous and exogenous visuospatial attention are some of his primary interests. Other fields of his interest are neural mechanisms underlying brain language-switching processes in interpreters and multilinguals, with the goal of understanding the plastic reorganization occurring in the human brain with the learning and proficient use of multiple languages. In addition, individual differences in affective functions between genders, and marital and parental status (e.g., male vs. female, married vs. unmarried people, and people with vs. people without children) are in the focus of his interests. This research bears strong implications for his research on the activation of the so-called F5-located “mirror neurons” (MN) in motor-skilled (e.g., such as athletes, ballet dancers, etc.) and non-skilled individuals as well as for emotion-related MN activation in the context of both appropriate and inappropriate socio-relational and emotional contexts. More recently, he also got involved in the study of the functionality of both the central and peripheral nervous systems in relation to music production and appreciation both in musicians and musically-non-educated people.

Profile:
Dr Alberto Zani graduated “Summa cum laude” in Experimental Psychology in 1979 at the University “La Sapienza” of Rome, discussing a Dissertation on “Brain Chemical Neuro-transmitters: Metabolic, Functional and Behavioral Aspects”. In 1981, he won a Fellowship from the Italian National Council of Research (CNR) in the context of the Triennial Special Research Program “Early Diagnosis and Prevention of Neural Sensory Deficits” to be carried out at the Umberto I Hospital of Rome, Italy. In 1982 he also received a Fellowship from the Dutch Foreign Office for an experimental program to be carried out at the Institute of Physiology and the Faculty of Psychology of University of Leiden, The Netherlands. Since late 1982 until late 1984 he spent a research period as Visiting Research Fellow at these same Institutions. Since 1982 until 1990 he was also a Research Fellow at the Institute of Psychology (IP) of the Italian CNR. In 1990, he obtained a contest-awarded specialization in “Physiological and Pharmacological Sciences” from Italian CNR, and was awarded with a tenured position of Researcher at the IP-CNR. In 1991, he received a Scholarship from James McDonnel Foundation for Cognitive Neuroscience, School of Medicine, Dartmouth College, USA, and, in 1996, a Scholarship from NATO, Advanced Institute on Role of Human Corpus Callosum in Sensory Motor Integration: Anatomy, Physiology, Behavior: Individual Differences & Clinical Applications. In 2000, he moved to the Institute of Neuroscience and Bioimaging of CNR, in Milan, Italy, which in 2003 was renamed in Institute of Molecular Bioimaging and Physiology (IBFM-CNR). From 1996 till 2012, he directed the “Cognitive Electrophysiology Lab”, while, since late 2012 up today, the state-of-the-art “Cognitive Electrofunctional Brain imaging Laboratory” of IBFM-CNR.

Samuel Ochieng

British Psychological Society (BPS)
UK

Research Interest:
Cross cultural relationships

Profile:
Samuelochie has a Jungian background. His Master’s Thesis was on Jung and the Shadow and over 30 years of therapeutic work, in three continents, as well as 10 years with Physis, under the late Petruska Clarkson. He was trained in the United States and furthered his training in the UK. He undertook his placement at the Isis Centre in Oxford and the Oxford Brooks University before setting up a practice in Reading, as well as doing presentations for professional bodies, researching and writing books in the field. His approach to client work is that the client decides on what mode of approach works for them, and a model is then built around the “structure” of the client. This is negotiated by how the client absorbs the one to one interaction and the emotional language of the client. The approaches are Integrative, integrating Person Center, CBT, Psychodynamic, Transactional Analysis or structuralism approaches. The forms of therapy may be short term counseling, (under six sessions) or long term psychotherapy (generally over eight sessions). He had gone on to construct and developed an approach called Skiatism, which is an approach that transcends cultural biases, as it can be put into any culture without diluting the content of the interaction. His e-book entitled In Bed With My Therapists gives a wider grounding about this process, developed from experience of three continents to which he had travelled and lived as an Author, Trainer and a Psychologist for the past 30 years. He had counseled in the areas of Mental Health, Ageing, ethnicity, Race and culture.
