Graduate Student


Vitória Velloso - MobgrabiLabI completed my BSc in Psychology at Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ), and I’m doing my master’s in clinical psychology at Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro (PUC-Rio). I’m currently developing a project to prevent dementia in healthy older adults, bringing an approach based on CST (Cognitive Stimulation Therapy). CST is a psychosocial therapy for people with dementia that has large evidence of effectiveness, and a great acceptance from the patients and their caregivers. We are building a bank of creative activities inspired by a variety of arts and games. My main interests are innovative and cost-effective neuropsychological interventions, preventive approaches in neuroscience, and the study of emotional processing and executive functions throughout life.
