Professor Petitto and research collaborators on the NSF INSPIRE “RAVE” grant (Petitto, PI, Gallaudet University prime) meet at the Universitá Gabriele d’Annunzio-Chieti Pescara, Italy to discuss experimental data collected, new advances in the Merla team’s integrated thermal IR imaging analyses, as well as to plan new robotic-avatar-thermal IR imaging experiments for the coming year.

The team also discussed the Research Program plan for graduate student Chiara Filippini’s upcoming visit to Gallaudet University, where she will join Petitto’s Brain and Language Laboratory for Neuroimaging (BL2).
