Research Interests:
I am interested in investigating the neuroanatomy of the brain at nanoscopic level, using 3DEM and 3D reconstruction, with a particular emphasis on astrocytes and their morphological coupling with neurons and vasculature. In my former team we pioneered the use Virtual Reality in neuroscience, and developed tools to explore the intimate relationships between these types of cells.

A spasso dentro il cervello (grazie alla realtà virtuale)
Alla King Abdullah University of Science and Technology di Thuwal, in Arabia Saudita, il team dell’italiano Corrado Calì utilizza ricostruzioni tridimensionali ottenute con microscopia elettronica per vedere il cervello a occhio nudo. Obiettivo: studiare come alcune particolari cellule (gli astrociti) garantiscono il rifornimento energetico ai neuroni

Le cellule cerebrali non hanno più segreti: un software di realtà virtuale ne ricostruisce lo scheletro

Ha lavorato diversi anni in Arabia Saudita, al KAUST - King Abdullah University of Science and Techonology, ma da inizio 2020 è tornato in Italia per unirsi alla nostra squadra di Sviluppo e patologia del Cervello, guidata dal prof. Alessandro Vercelli. In questo che è il suo primo lavoro 'targato' NICO - Università di Torino, Corrado Calì ha sviluppato un nuovo framework basato sulla realtà virtuale (VR) per l'analisi di modelli tridimensionali di cellule cerebrali ricostruite da immagini di microscopia elettronica 3D.
