Lucas Sedeño obtained his Lic. in Psychology from the University of Buenos Aires in the year 2010, and nowadays he is a PhD students in the University of Favaloro.
In 2011, he started working in the Laboratory of Experimental Psychology and Neuroscience (LPEN), Institute of Translational and Cognitive Neuroscience (INCyT), INECO Foundation, Favaloro University, Buenos Aires, Argentina. Since, he has developed experimental research related to social cognition, interoception and embodied cognition in neurological (stroke lesions and degeneration diseases), cardiac and anxiety patients.
In the year 2012 he got an scholarship from CONICET by the project entitled “Fronto-temporo-insular networks and contextual cues in Social Cognition: a lesion study. The aim of this project is to explore the integrative contextual role of fronto-temporo and insular regions, and their functional connectivity.
In the last years, his research is focused in the application of neuroimaging data (both structural and functional) to characterize neurological diseases. In this context, he applied and received a scholarship from the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) for a three-month internship in the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) during 2015. In this period, he has received training in voxel-based morphometry analysis (VBM), cortical-thickness analysis, and tract-based spatial statistics for difussion images (DTI).
He has publications in leading journals such as Stroke, Cortex, Scientific Report, Neuroimage, SCAN, Cerebral Cortex, Journal of the International Neuropsychological Society, PloS ONE and Frontiers in Human Neuroscience.
