Aim of my group is to unravel the neurocognitive mechanisms of human learning and memory adopting a system-level approach, combining behavioural studies in healthy subjects and patients with brain disorders with neuroimaging (structural/functional MRI).

Specifically we examine the:

  • interaction and overlap between executive control (incl. working memory) and episodic and/or prospective memory, with emphasis on the medial temporal lobe
  • interaction between memory encoding and retrieval
  • mechanisms underlying individual differences in lifespan-related memory decline and brain disease
  • mechanisms of plasticity and learning, and their application in cognitive rehabilitation
  • application of the above in neuropsychological assessment and neuropsychiatry
