About Me


Anna Martinez Alvarez

My current PhD research explores whether different attentional mechanisms are involved during language acquisition, combining data from infant studies and children with Specific Language Impairment (SLI).

My main research objectives are:
1.  To explore how temporal orientation develops during infancy,
2.  To comprehend how attention is involved in language acquisition,
3.  To understand how temporal orienting deficits may lead to language deficits.

My research interests also extend to areas such as Biolinguistics, infant cognition, language neuroscience and bilingualism .


I am a member of the Cognition and Brain Plasticity group (University of Barcelona) and the APAL infant lab (University of Barcelona). I also collaborate with the Biolinguistics Initiative Barcelona (University of Barcelona).
