Biography

Prof. Dr. Antonios Dakanalis, MD, PSyD, PhD, is an Adjunct Senior Researcher & Contract Professor of Experimental and Clinical Psychopatoghology at the Department of Translational Medicine, Medical School, University of Milano-Bicocca, Italy (ranked within the world’s top 20 Universities; source: the 2013 Times Higher Education rankings dedicated to the universities instituted less than 50 years ago), where he is also Didactic Coordinator & Scientific Co-director for the Executive Master “Diagnosis and multidisciplinary treatment of Eating Disorders”. He is also External Contract Professor of Abnormal Psychology and Child and Adult Psychotherapy at the Department of Brain and Behavioural Sciences, University of Pavia, Italy. His work underpins the very first neuropsychological model of bodily self-objectification and its role in the development and maintenance process of eating disorder psychopathology and the very first application of body swapping illusion as a tool for modifying our (distorted) memory of the body in a controlled way. He is conducted several empirical investigations with large clinical populations highlighting the role of multidimensional body image in the maintenance process of eating pathology and the need for additional interventions to improve the effectiveness of existing evidence-based interventions, as well as various longitudinal studies on unhealthy weight-control behaviours used to counter distorted body representation as potential antecedents of eating and weight disorders.
