Ana Zappa

Ana ZAPPA received the 2020 Best Thesis Award from the Language, Cognition, and Education doctoral school (ED 356).  Her thesis, entitled “Embodied semantics put to the test: electrophysiological evidence from virtual reality and classical environments“, was conducted under the supervision of Cheryl FRENCK-MESTRE (LPL) and in collaboration with the CRVM. Ana examined language processing and second language learning within the framework of embodied semantics. Her studies  used novel methodologies that combine EEG and virtual reality to examine language processing and learning in highly interactive and ecologically valid environments. They have led to three publications in top-tier international journals. Congratulations, Ana!
