In this period he studied the hemispheric specialization in healthy children and in children with dysphasia, dyslexia, and acquired aphasia . He was PI of several research projects on the neural bases of learning processes.

From 1988 to 1991 he worked as a child neurologist. at the Dept. of Neuropsychiatry of the Children's Hospital in Trieste. At the same time he was chief researcher and responsible in charge of research projects on the neuropsychological aspects of learning processes.

During this period he spent three years as a visiting researcher at the Dept. of Linguistics of the McGill University in Montreal, Canada, and at the Dept. of Neurolinguistics of the Vrije Universiteit in Brussels, Belgium, where he carried out research on the neurolinguistics of bilingualism and neuropsychology of altered states of consciousness.

From 2001 to 2005 he was full professor of Neurosciences (Department of Philosophy) of the University of Udine (Italy) and holded the post of chief of the Neurolinguistic Unit at the Children’s Neurological Research Hospital “E.

He was Chief of the Aphasia Committee of the International Association of Logopedics and Phoniatrics (IALP) (2001-2003).


Research Interests
His research interests involve the neural bases of language processing and of bilingualism, the study of altered state of consciousness, the neuropsychology of the religious experiences and the plasticity of cognitive functions following brain damage. In the recent years his research interest have been focusing on the neuropsychological investigation of psychiatric patients. His scientific outcomes are documented by the writing of 19 books and mote than 150 referred articles on neurophysiologic, neurolinguistic, neuropsychological and philosophical issues.
