María Jimena Ricatti -

I am a Medical Doctor and Neuroscientist living in Italy and pursuing an ideal future: to connect people with nature through a deep exploration of human senses by showing how to use them to make more sustainable choices.

After many years teaching at the School of Medicine in Argentina and working as a researcher around the world, I decided to take advantage of that knowledge to solve problems that affect human well-being and the current state of our planet.

The way in which our brain perceives the surroundings is shaped by the five senses. By understanding sensorial pathways, it is possible to nudge the senses to improve our relationship with the environment, to help people to enjoy food or to find a more conscious eating approach.
This is the core of my project sensorytrip: to explore neuronal plasticity for a better future.
