Alina Leminen, PhD, Docent


Description of research and teaching

I investigate the neural dynamics of language processing and language learning. The specific emphasis is on morphological processing. In my research, I use electro- and magnetoencephalography (EEG, MEG), functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) as well as transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). 

I currently work as a University Lecturer in Cognitive Science, Department of Digital Humanities. I am also affiliated to Cognitive Brain Research Unit (CBRU), University of Helsinki. I supervise 4 Doctoral students and act as a Principal Investigator in a research project funded by the University of Helsinki, where we investigate rapid word and affix learning as well as the impact of sleep on language learning. 

Further information on the affiliationPrincipal investigator in the L.A.R.P. research group (Department of Digital Humanities)
