    S Righi
    Department of Psychology, University of Florence, Italy
    Acta Psychol (Amst) 139:7-18. 2012
    ..Overall, these results suggest that face recognition is modulated by top-down influences from brain areas associated with emotional memory, enhancing encoding and retrieval in particular for fearful emotional expressions...

    S Righi
    Dipartimento di Psicologia, Universita degli Studi di Firenze, Via S Niccolò 93, 50125 Firenze, Italy
    Neuropsychologia 45:2931-41. 2007
    ..Thus, our data suggest that dopaminergic loss has a specific role in category-specific impairment. Two possible hypotheses are discussed that may account for the defective recognition of semantically different objects in PD...

    Stefania Righi
    Dipartimento di Psicologia, Universita degli Studi di Firenze, Firenze, Italy
    J Anxiety Disord 23:1132-8. 2009
    ..As shown by current research, frontal areas and anterior cingulated cortex appear to be particularly involved in this affective-cognitive interaction...

    Maria Pia Viggiano
    Dipartimento di Psicologia, Universita degli Studi di Firenze, Florence, Italy
    Exp Aging Res 34:267-81. 2008
    ..Current findings suggest that severe cortical degeneration may render AD patients unable to maintain their perceptual memories, and that dementia severity is a critical variable in the visual recognition memory assessment...

    Maria Pia Viggiano
    Dipartimento di Psicologia, Universita degli Studi di Firenze, Via S Niccolò 93, 50125 Firenze, Italy
    Arch Gerontol Geriatr 42:329-38. 2006

    Maria P Viggiano
    Dipartimento di Psicologia, Universita di Firenze, Italy

    Arch Gerontol Geriatr 44:125-39. 2007
    ..Present results indicate a semantic memory deficit along with a disruption of perceptual representation. Data were discussed referring to perceptual/functional, domain-specific knowledge, and prefrontal cortex (PFC) theories...

    ..One possibility might be that evolution has provided the brain with a 'special toolkit' for trust evaluation that is fast and triggers ERPs related to emotional processing. ..
