Dr Germano Gallicchio

Sport and Exercise Sciences Lecturer (Teaching & Research)

Contact info

I am a psychophysiologist by training. I am broadly interested in the interactions among biological systems (e.g., brain, heart, eyes) and how psychological states influence these interactions.

Student meetings: Click here for checking the most updated meeting times or for booking a DROP-IN or TUTORIAL meeting.

  • DROP-IN = Unannounced short meeting that is bookable only on the same day, typically Mon and Thu 11:30-12:30. A bit like knocking at my office door, but online.
  • TUTORIAL = Potentially long-ish meeting for my tutees and project/dissertation students. Only bookable in advance.

If any of this is confusing, send me an email.

Research

My research interests lie at the intersection of Biological Psychology, Cognitive Neuroscience, and Human Performance. Most recently, I have applied methods of computational psychophysiology in an attempt to advance knowledge in these fields:

  • Determinants of superior performance and learning in target sports
  • Development of novel techniques to study eye movements during discrete movements
  • Effects of physical fatigue on neurophysiology
