Temi di ricerca
Sara Palermo is a MSc in Clinical Psychology and a PhD in Experimental Neuroscience. Moreover, she obtained the National Scientific Enabling Certificate for Associate Professorship in April 2017 (ASN-2017). She is an expert in experimental neuroscience, clinical neuropsychology and advance neuropsychological testing. Moreover, she performs multidimensional geriatric evaluation and basic neurological symptomatology detection in patients with neurodegenerative disorders. She is also engaged in Activation Likelihood Estimation meta-analysis of neuroimaging studies.
She worked as a postdoc research fellow at the Department of Neuroscience “Rita Levi Montalcini” in Turin until July 2017. Since then she works as research fellow at the Department of Psychology in Turin. To date, she owns three research Group memberships at the University of Turin (Italy). She is a member of the “Center for the Study of Movement Disorders” (research area: Neurology) and the “Placebo Responses Mapping Group” (research area: Physiology) at the Department of Neuroscience, and a member of the “Neuropsychology of cognitive impairment and central nervous system degenerative diseases Group” at the Department of Psychology (Research Area: Psychobiology and physiological psychology).
She is actively involved in the didactic of the Department of Psychology, University of Turin. She was the lecturer of the "Psychophysiology - Lab" for the 2015/2016 academic year. Furthermore, she is teaching assistant for the following courses: 1) Neuropsychology of cognitive impairment and central nervous system degenerative diseases; 2) Forensic Neuroscience; 3) Psychophysiology B. Moreover, she is lecturer for the course Neuropsychology of cognitive impairment in minor and major neurocognitive disorders at the Doctoral School of Neuroscience at the University of Turin.
The main topics of her research are the study of awareness of illness, metacognitive-executive deficits in neuropsychiatric and neurological disorders, physical and cognitive frailty in the elderly, and placebo/nocebo phenomena. Interestingly, all of them may represent appealing perspectives from which to study how neuropsychological abnormalities can be explained in terms of brain activities and with the use of neuropsychiatric and neuropsychological batteries considering a neurocognitive approach.
Given her research interests and scientific publications, Sara Palermo has been an ordinary member of the Italian Society of Neuropsychology (SINP) since 2014, of the Italian Association of Psychogeriatric (AIP) since 2017, of the Italian Society of Neurology for Dementia (SINdem), of the international Society for Interdisciplinary Placebo Studies (SIPS) since 2019. Importantly, she is a member of the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Aging (EIP on AHA), for which she is involved in the Action Group A3 “Functional decline and frailty” with the commitment “Screening and early diagnosis on MCI and cognitive frailty” (Scientific Director: Pr Amanzio M). Previously, Sara Palermo had been involved in the European Cooperation in Science & technology with the ISCH COST Action TD1005 “Pain Assessment in Patients with Impaired Cognition, especially Dementia".
Sara Palermo is Panel Editor for "EC Psychology and Psychiatry" and Guest Topic Editor for "Frontiers in Psychology - Cognitive Science", for which she has proposed a topic on Perspective-taking, Self-awareness and Social Cognition in Neurodegenerative Disorders, cerebral abnormalities and Acquired Brain Injuries (ABI): A Neurocognitive Approach. She was recently appointed as Specialty Chief Editor for "Frontiers in Psychology - Neuropsychology". She has also been nominated Academic Editor for IntechOpen publisher.
