Claudio Babiloni, PhD, is Associate Professor of Physiology at the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology “V. Erspamer”, University of Rome “La Sapienza”. He has made significant contributions to Cognitive Neuroscience and Clinical Neurophysiology, particularly his work concerning the role of brain EEG rhythms in the regulation of cortical arousal and vigilance in the resting state condition in humans. Professor Babiloni has also worked on biomarkers for Alzheimer’s disease where he has shown that cortical EEG rhythms are related to global cognition and signs of amyloid burden and atrophy in the brain of patients with prodromal and overt Alzheimer’s disease. Professor Babiloni co-authored more than 225 full peer-reviewed papers registered in PubMed and his Google Scholar scientometric indexes are as follows: 9,604 citations, H index of 59, and i10-index of 178 (28th of December 2015).
