dani_despatxDaniel Adrover Roig. Associate professor.  

Google_Scholar_logoResearchGate_LogoI received my Ph.D. in 2008  (Neurosciences area, Balearic Islands University, UIB), which consisted in characterizing both cognitive and EEG patterns of task switching in non-clinical aging populations.  During 2008-2011 I did my postdoctoral stay in Montréal (Canada) under the supervision of Dr. Ansaldo. During this period I explored how lifelong bilingualism shapes neuronal networks and impacts attentional control. My research interests focus on the development of attention and emotion in multilingual children and adults, particularly on the interplay between decision making, language, and emotion. I am also very interested in how bilingualism impacts the learning process in children with language acquisition difficulties.
