Biodata en ingles:
Broadly speaking, Dr. Ramenzoni’s research investigates the cognitive mechanisms that link action perception and action execution. She explores how perception-action links are used to predict other people’s actions, to create and maintain social interactions, and to update our representation of the body. She studies perception-action dynamics at multiple scales spanning individuals, dyads, and small groups through the use of behavioral paradigms that capture discrete responses and changes in online performance (e.g., movement kinematics, postural sway, eye-tracking, finger tapping). The analytical tools applied in these projects also vary, and include from traditional psychophysics to non-linear time-series analyses (e.g., cross-recurrence quantification, fractal scaling, principle components analyses).
Dr. Ramenzoni joined the LPEN in 2016, as an Adjunct Researcher for the CONICET. Her current research investigates the cognitive mechanisms that sustain action prediction and planning during joint actions in adults, infants, and patients with frontal lobe damage. Her interests include: 1) investigating the contextual factors shaping action models used to predict and plan actions online, 2) identifying the kind of informational exchanges that support the updating of joint and individual action models, and 3) exploring the neural networks that support them. In her scholarly work, Dr. Ramenzoni is developing a theoretical model of social perception-action mechanisms that interfaces predictive modelling and dynamic coordination approaches.
Dr. Ramenzoni has a background is in experimental psychology and dynamical systems theory (Ph.D., University of Cincinnati, Perception and Motor Dynamics Lab). She has also worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Virginia, where she expanded her research to study the early development of perception and action, and the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics, where she studied how the development of perception-action informs the emergence of communication abilities in infancy. In 2011, Dr. Ramenzoni joined the Social, Mind, and Body Lab (SOMBY Lab)—first at the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition, and Behavior and later at the Central European University Cognitive Sciences Department). Her research as a somby focused on the study of the perception-action mechanisms that support online interactions between peers and groups. In parallel to this work, she maintains on-going collaborations with Petter Holme (Sungkyunkwan University) to study how computational networks can be applied to investigate social processes within communities, Cordula Vesper (Central European University) and Ivana Konvalinka (Technical University of Denmark) to investigate the theoretical foundations of interpersonal coordination, and with John Michael (University of Warwick) to study and implicit commitments are established during social interactions.
Her teaching experience includes lecturing classes in cognitive psychology, embodiment, dynamical systems theory, research methods, and statistics at universities in the US (U of Cincinnati, U of Virginia), Europe (Radboud University, Central European University), and Argentina (Universidad de Buenos Aires, Facultad de Psicología). She is a member of the Cognitive Sciences Society, the Psychonomic Society, the European Society for Cognitive Psychology, and the International Society for Ecological Psychology.
