Rafaella Zambetti

Position: Research Fellow
Categories: Research Fellow

Rafaella Zambetti is a PhD student in Neurofunctional Physiotherapy at the University of São Carlos, in Brazil, and visiting student at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School. Ms. Zambetta’s research focuses on the effects of a microgravity simulation (head-down tilt) on intracranial pressure and heart rate variability. Ms. Zambetta also investigates the relationship between increased intracranial pressure and brain oscillations during cognitive testing before and after the head-down tilt. In addition, part of her PhD, conducted at MGH, is the effects of non-invasive brain stimulation on brain oscillations in Alzheimer’s disease.
