About the Author

Piscitelli, Daniele: - Daniele Piscitelli is affiliated with the University of Milano-Bicocca, Italy as a Researcher. He was a visiting scholar at Pennsylvania State University (USA) for one year (2015/4- 2016/5). From 2017 to 2022, he was a Post-Doc Fellow at McGill University, under the directorship of Dr. Mindy F. Levin. He is a researcher with a background in neuroscience, neurorehabilitation, and clinical research design. He has a strong interest in rehabilitation after stroke, neural motor control, and psychometric assessment of outcome measures. His research focuses on understanding the neurophysiological mechanisms of motor control and how this knowledge can be translated into clinical research and clinical practice to promote recovery after brain lesions. His research has continuously been funded by many competitive research fellowships such as the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research, McGill Faculty of Medicine, "Fonds de recherche en sante´ du Que´bec", and Canadian Institute of Health Research. Dr. Piscitelli has published several original papers and theoretical works in peer-review journals about the underlying motor control mechanisms in post-stroke recovery, despite a relatively young research-active career. In 2021, Dr. Piscitelli was the recipient of the Early Career Investigator Award by the International Society of Motor Control.
