Elisabetta Ladavas is a Professor of Neuropsychology at the Department of Psychology of the University of Bologna. She has conducted research in the filed of cognitive neuroscience at the Division of Neuroscience, Cornell University, Medical College, New York (1982-1984); Department of Psychology, Erindale College, University of Toronto, Canada (1981-1982). She serves as a "referee" for several international scientific journals (Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience, Cognitive Neuropsychology, Cortex, Experimental Brain Research, Neurocase, Neuropsychologia) and as an associated Editor of “Neuropsychologia”. 
Her research interests include: cognitive neuroscience and neuropsychology, selective attention, multisensory integration, space representation for perception and action. She is also interested in the assessment and rehabilitation of deficits in the above mentioned processes resulting from acquired brain injury.
