I am currently a Research fellow in neurosurgery at the Brain Modulation Lab, MGH-Harvard, US.

Matteo Vissani received a PhD in Biorobotics at Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna. He received a BSc in Biomedical Engineering at Marche Polytechnic University and a MSc in Biomedical Engineering at University of Bologna. He partecipated in the Erasmus Programme at Campus Biotech and École Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne. He pursued a Research Fellowship at Centre hospitalier universitaire vaudois.

Matteo's research interest lies in the intersection between neuroengineering, computational modeling and clinical questions. He focuses on tackling current scientific Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) challenges.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
