Princicipali conseguimenti nell’attivit?i ricerca
Ha ottenuto le prime evidenze relative ad asimmetrie cerebrali nelle funzioni superiori in specie non umane, in particolare relativamente ai processi di riconoscimento individuale negli uccelli; inoltre ha riportato per primo fenomeni di lateralit?ei cosiddetti vertebrati inferiori (pesci e anfibi)); su questi argomenti ha pubblicato diversi lavori scientifici su riviste quali Nature, Current Biology, e Proceedings Royal Society. Ha sviluppato una nuova ipotesi sull’evoluzione delle asimmetrie del cervello e del comportamento, basata su concetti di biologia evoluzionista e di teoria matematica dei giochi; ipotesi che è stata ben ricevuta nella comunità scientifica internazionale (con un “target article” su Behavioral Brain Sciences e resoconti giornalistici su riviste quali Scientific American e Nature On-Line). Si ?ccupato anche di cognizione animale, in particolare del riconoscimento di oggetti parzialmente occlusi, della percezione del movimento biologico e della codifica della geometria nei processi di orientamento spaziale. Su tutti questi argomenti il suo lavoro ?en noto a livello internazionale e molto citato. Complessivamente ha pubblicato più di 200 articoli su riviste internazionali peer-review, che hanno avuto a tutt’oggi un totale di pi? 13000 citazioni con un h-index di 55 (source Scopus; mentre su Google Scholar l’h-index è pari a 64). Il suo lavoro è stato inoltre riportato in varie occasioni su Faculty of 1000 Biology e in numerosi volumi, sia specialistici sia di divulgazione scientifica (per es. in J. Vauclair (1996).
