Sara Yunha Kim

Education: Cornell University

Research Interests: Sara's primary interests relate to sleep and memory, particularly episodic and emotional episodic memory, with secondary interests in states of emotional arousal (e.g., acute stress). Her current research examines 1) the effects of stage-specific characteristics (e.g., sleep spindles) on episodic memory, including investigations into ecologically valid measures of episodic memory, and 2) the mechanisms underlying preferential consolidation of emotional information during sleep.
