Our research interests involve exploring how the mutual influence of some fundamental linguistic, cognitive and temperamental components change and develop. 

Particularly, we aim at examining how bilingualism boosts executive control and its influence on language and cognition in children with language acquisition difficulties. We are also interested in giving advice for educational practice and to extend our findings to broader research communities. Our research is arranged in three broad overlapping sections:

 

α Language acquisition and language impairment  

β Bilingualism, aging and attentional control

γ Emotion processing and normative data

 Our research group was  honored with the organization of the VIII International Conference on Language Acquisition, which was held in Palma de Mallorca from 7th to 9th September 2016.
