Chiara Ferrari - Junior Researcher
 

Chiara Ferrari graduated in Clinical Psychology at the Catholic University of Milan. Her research interests deal mainly with clinical neuropsychology. She works on memory deficits in clinical (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) and sub-clinical populations. Specifically, she investigates the influence of emotional valence, stress-related contents and familiarity on memory performance in emergency contexts workers. She also investigates the involvement of different cerebral structures in memory processes using rTMS (repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation).
