Arianna Rigon is a third year Ph.D candidate in the Neuroscience Program. Originally from Italy, she received a B.S. in Psychology (2011), and an M.S. in Cognitive Neuroscience and Neuropsychological Rehabilitation (2013) from the University of Padova. At Iowa her research focuses on social impairment following traumatic brain injury. In particular, she uses MRI to investigate how inter-individual differences in brain structure and function can predict outcome after a traumatic brain injury. Her project for the Graduate Institute aims at raising awareness of signs and symptoms of traumatic brain injury in contexts in which screening procedures are not yet in place.
