Anthony N. Correro II, M.S. graduated from Louisiana State University with a B.S.
in psychology and minors in biological sciences and Italian. At that time, he obtained training in neuropsychology and dementia research. He completed an honors thesis
in cognitive psychology and was awarded a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship. He currently works with Kristy Nielson, Ph.D. to study
age-related cognitive impairment and memory consolidation processes. His
master’s thesis focused on how emotional arousal affects false memory in healthy young adults on the alexithymia spectrum. Anthony has presented research with the AIM Laboratory nationally and internationally, and his future research will likely examine the impact of LGBTQ+ related stress on older adults’ cognitive functioning. Anthony’s clinical interests reside in neuropsychological assessment of older adults and psychotherapeutic interventions for elders. He aspires to spend a lifetime working with older adults and researching the unique factors that impact LGBTQ+ aging.
