Dr. Palumbo earned his Ph.D. in Cognitive Neuroscience from University of Chieti, Italy. After spending 12 months as a visiting student at Brandeis University, he started his postdoctoral fellowship at Schepens Eye Research Institute, Harvard Medical School. Dr. Palumbo background focused in monitoring changes of cognitive functions in pathological and healthy populations. He has worked on a wide range of projects, starting with the study of the normal functioning in different domains as perception, attention, emotion and memory, he investigated how these functions change during the life span and how pathological conditions such as dementia or mental disorders affect cognitive functions.
Dr. Palumbo, is an Assistant Professor of Neurology at BUSM and is currently Program Manager in the Center for Translational Cognitive Neuroscience at the VA Boston Healthcare System, working on several projects focusing on the role of false memories in patients with memory disorders.
