Leonardo Bonetti was born in Bologna, Italy. He completed a Master’s degree with top marks and honor in “Cognitive Applied Psychology” (2016) at the University of Bologna and a Master’s degree with top mark in “Classical Guitar” (2013) at the Conservatory of Bologna.

Winner of a three months stay grant from Aarhus University, Leonardo joined MIB in November 2016 and he started his PhD studies in February 2017.

During his PhD, supervised by Professors Elvira Brattico and Morten Kringelbach, he is going to use the whole-brain computational modelling to model differences in brain activation and functional connectivity between musicians and non-musicians, highlighting the causality aspect in brain processing, both in resting state network and when listening to music, taking into consideration also psychological differences between individuals in the cognitive domain.

Leonardo lists three publications (and several submissions) in international scientific peer-reviewed journals as well as other non-scientific publications such as two books of his own music for classical guitar and one book concerning young talented people from Bologna.

He has performed as a guitarist and speaker in several Italian cities and in few European countries. Furthermore, he has been the artistic director of international music festivals hold in Bologna and, in the year 2014, he was Professor at Conservatory “G.B. Martini” of Bologna.
