Federico GioveMarta Moraschi received a Degree in Physics in the field of Physics of Biosystem, and a MSc in Medical Physics from The Specialisation School of the Sapienza Univesity of Rome. She currently works for the Enrico Fermi Center. Her research interests include human brain function, structure and organization in both physiological and pathological conditions (parkinson Disease, Alzheimer Disease, Down Syndrome and other neurodegenerative disorders). Her experimental activity is mainly focus on the study of cerebral activity and fluctuation of cerebral Resting State (Resting State MRI), by means of Magnetic Resonance Imaging techniques. She worked and currently works on the study of cerebral structure, mainly in patological conditions. Moreover, she is interested in several technical aspects of MRI, such as optimization of data acquisition and processing. In recent last years, She worked for Sant'Andrea Hospistal of Rome, as a mediacal Physicist in the Unit of Medical Physics and the Unit of Radiotherapy where she has dealt with the planning of external radiation therapies. She also contributed to the planning and actualization of the scientific activity of the Unit of Neuroradiology.
