Dr. Anna Jessen

Biography

I studied Italian Linguistics and Neurolinguistics at Freiburg University. I worked there as a student assistant at the Neurolab on a project on specific language impairment in children. After my M.A., I became a PhD student at Humboldt University Berlin and researched the impact of different times of day on the processing of anaphoric resolutions. This work was funded by Gottfried Daimler and Carl Benz foundation and Zentrum für allgemeine Sprachwissenschaft (ZAS), Berlin. I started working at PRIM in October 2013 as a research fellow.

Research Interests

I am interested in how the brain processes language. In particular I am interested in processes of language learning, either in childhood or later in life (L2) and in difficulties and disorders of language processing, e.g. as a result of sleep deprivation or developmental or psychological disorders.
