Simone Dalla Bella, Ph.D.
Dr. Dalla Bella is interested in the cognitive and neuronal mechanisms underpinning music perception and performance. His research has focused on musical skills, such as pitch and rhythm perception/production, in the general population as well as in individuals with musical deficits (tone deafness and beat deafness). Current research is centered around 1) the evaluation and profiling of rhythmic abilities in healthy individuals and patient populations (e.g., patients with Parkinson’s disease, ADHD), and 2) the use of rhythmic stimulation and training to improve motor skills (e.g., gait and speech in patients with Parkinson’s disease). He uses behavioural methods, motion capture, EEG, and exploits new mobile technologies for testing and training purposes.
