My name is Sara LoTemplio, I am currently a fourth year PhD student in cognitive neuroscience in the psychology department at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City.
I am an active researcher in the Applied Cognition Lab and the LAMA lab. I’m particularly interested in the restorative effects of natural environments on attention; both their cognitive benefits and neurological underpinnings. I use a variety of behavioral measures as well as EEG in my research. Before Utah, I worked for three years as a research assistant in Colby College’s Memory and Language Lab on projects relating to semantic memory, false memory, the testing effect, and cognitive aging.
I am originally from Plattsburgh, New York and my alma mater is Colby College in Waterville, Maine, where I studied Psychology and Environmental Science- I also have a background in ecology research.
