Veronica Mazza

Veronica Mazza

 

She is the principal investigator of the Attention, Perception and Aging Group, and an associate professor at the Center for Mind/Brain Sciences (CIMeC).


Her research interests are primarily focused on how the visual system selectively individuates and identifies the relevant objects presented in a cluttered scene.


She addresses this question through electrophysiological and behavioral measures in young and older adults.


At CIMeC she is also the coordinator of the Experimental Psychology Labs (EPL).   

Chiara Tagliabue

Chiara Tagliabue

 

She is a post-doctoral fellow in the Attention, Perception and Aging Group, where her current research activity mainly focuses on cognitive aging.


To this aim, she is investigating the effects of aging on multiple object processing and the possibility to train such ability, using both behavioral and electrophysiological measures (i.e. ERPs, brain oscillations).


She is also collaborating in a project employing multi-domain cognitive trainings addressed to healthy elderly.

Alexandria Holcomb

Alexandria Holcomb

 

She is a PhD candidate for the doctoral course in Cognitive and Brain Sciences.


Her main research interests are focused on improving cognitive abilities in the elderly.


For her PhD, she will be investigating the potential of non-invasive brain stimulation techniques on improving working memory abilities in older adults. She is also exploring the placebo effect with regard to improving cognition in the elderly.

Alice Bertolini

Alice Bertolini

 

She is a psychology student, majoring in Neuroscience. She is conducting a research project at the APA Lab, where she is studying changes in spatial distribution of visual attention among young and elderly subjects and a possible correlation with hearing abilities.

Chiara Fornari

Chiara Fornari

 

She is a master student intern. Her main interest is the study of cerebral plasticity of cognitive abilities in ageing through psychophysiological measures.

Francesco Scarpa

Francesco Scarpa

 

He is a master student in Neuroscience at Trento University, carrying out his thesis research project at the Attention, Perception and Aging group. His main research interests are psychophysiology and aging.

Giulia Garbin

Giulia Garbin

 

She is a second year student at the Neuroscience Master Course of the University of Trento. The goal of her thesis project is to investigate changes in neural activity and behavioral performance of working memory following short-term training in the elderly. In particular, if there is a transfer of the training effect between different behavioral tasks engaging the same neural mechanisms.
