I am interested in the development of episodic memory with a focus on developmental processes occurring within the medial temporal lobes.

I investigate the development of memory and associated high-level cognitive processes across childhood. I am especially interested in using behavioral and neuroimaging methods to elucidate the relationship between remembering one's past and envisioning one's future, and how knowledge about this topic might be used to help individuals with deficits in future-oriented thought processes.

My research involves the development of episodic memory and metamemory, and the neural correlates of typical and atypical development.

Yana is interested in the development of episodic memory and cognitive control from middle childhood to old age, and its neural underpinning. Her previous research at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development in Berlin, Germany examined lifespan age differences in false memory and the neural correlates of aging deficits in mnemonic control. In collaboration with Prof. Simona Ghetti and Prof. Silvia Bunge, Yana is currently investigating the contributions of functional activation, regional gray matter and structural connectivity to the development of different aspects of mnemonic control during middle childhood.

After four years spent working as a preschool teacher, I am excited to continue learning about child development in a research setting. In the future, I hope to further my education by attending graduate school.
