Alberto De Luca

I’m Alberto, 24 years old. Since I was a teenager, my passions were social science and psychology: after high school, I had no doubts on my future and I chose Psychology as my bachelor. Throughout the lectures and exams in my studies, I realized I really love psychology. The reasons why include, but are not limited to: The focus in science, understanding people in their behaviour and learning the deepest reasons for their actions.

I completed my Master’s degree in Cognitive Psychology at the University of Padova and I’m now working on the effect of tVNS and tDCS on human cognition as lab-assistant at the University of Leiden.
