My research focuses on Syntax in acquired and developmental language disorders.
I am currently interested in how syntax interacts with cognitive capacities (such as Working Memory and Executive functions) in people with acquired language disorders.
- Working Memory and Comprehension of Relative Clauses in people with Aphasia (with Gemma Learmonth, University of Edinburgh);
- Syntactic Priming in children with SLI (with Holly Branigan and Moreno Coco, University of Edinburgh);
- Cross modal priming in Language and Maths (with Chiara Caruso, Università di Chieti);
- Processing of Agreement during attraction with different pronominal classess (with Alberto Di Domenico, Università di Chieti)
