Background

 

I have obtained my BA in Advertising and Marketing from the University of Greenwich in 2012, an MSc in Psychology of Individual differences and a PhD in Psychology from the University of Edinburgh in 2015 and 2020, respectively. For my MSc and PhD theses, I conducted different research studies focusing on memory and forgetting involving both clinical and non-clinical populations:

•   Della Sala, S., Kozlova, I., Stamate, A., & Parra, M. A. (2018). A transcultural cognitive marker of Alzheimer's Disease. International Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry, 33(6), 849-856. https://doi.org/10.1002/gps.4610.

•   Stamate, A., Logie, R. H., Baddeley, A. D., & Della Sala, S. (2020). Forgetting in Alzheimer's disease: Is it fast? Is it affected by repeated retrieval?. Neuropsychologia, 138, 107351.https://doi.org/ 10.1016/j.neuropsychologia.2020.107351

•  Lares, K. R., Stamate, A., & Della Sala, S. (2021). The cognitive concept of forgetting. In Encyclopedia of Behavioural Neuroscience 2nd Edition: Reference Module in Neuroscience and Biobehavioral Psychology. Elsevier Science. https://doi.org/10.1016/B978-0-12-819641-0.00155-9).

•   Currently under review is another paper in Psychology and Aging, investigating accelerated forgetting in older populations.

Research summary

I am interested in human cognitive neuroscience, particularly in the cognitive mechanism of forgetting in both healthy and clinical samples and whether by manipulating different variables (type of material, age, level of initial learning, etc.) we influence the rate of forgetting.
