My research focuses on investigating age-related changes in episodic memory. In particular, I have been studying the effect of emotion on the age-related associative deficit. Additionally, I am working on projects assessing the role of attention on episodic memory processes, via online measures of performance for stimuli presented in a dichotic listening task paradigm or by studying memory for perceptually degraded stimuli. Lastly, I am also interested in exploring factors that could help attenuate episodic memory decline experienced by older adults.
