Bio For Marcelo Bigliassi, Ph.D.
Dr. Bigliassi has been active in the field of psychophysiology and neuroscience for over a decade. He received his Ph.D. from Brunel University London, UK where he conducted a research program to further understanding of the brain mechanisms underlying the effects of dissociative techniques on exercise. He was then hired as a postdoctoral research fellow at University of São Paulo, Brazil where he conducted a series of studies to explore the use of associative strategies during execution of gross movements. Upon completion of his fellowship, he accepted a tenure-track position in the College of Arts, Sciences, & Education at Florida International University, USA as an assistant professor. His work integrates psychophysiological measures (electroencephalography [EEG], functional magnetic resonance imaging [fMRI], functional near-infrared spectroscopy [fNIRS], electromyography [EMG], and heart rate variability [HRV]), psychophysical, and affective measures to further understanding of psychological phenomena during exercise-related situations. He has published over 50 research articles in scientific journals, delivered several guest lectures in national and international conferences, and published hundreds of articles in newspapers and magazines. He has also been awarded on several occasions in the UK and Germany. Dr. Bigliassi is a guest editor for Journal of Clinical Sport Psychology and active reviewer for prestigious periodicals such as NeuroImage, Neuroscience, Psychiatry Research, International Review of Sport and Exercise Psychology, Neuroscience & Biobehavioral Reviews, and Psychophysiology.
