Silvia is a Research Associate mainly focused on the neuropsychological progression of neurodegenerative diseases such as Posterior Cortical Atrophy (PCA).

Her interests are devoted to different cognitive functions such as reading, spelling and visual functions in PCA. Silvia’s interests also include eye movement patterns in patients with frontotemporal dementia, with the aim of finding early symptoms for the detection of this disease. Part of her work addresses abstract and concrete semantic knowledge.
