Alejandrina Cristia received a Scholar Award from the James S. McDonnell Foundation

 Alejandrina Cristia is researcher at CNRS. She is interested in how experience and expectations interact in early language acquisition. To understand this interaction, she uses corpora analyses, behavioral and neuroimaging methods. 

Founded in 1950 by aerospace pioneer James S. McDonnell, the Foundation was established to "improve the quality of life," and does so by contributing to the generation of new knowledge through its support of research and scholarship. The Foundation awards grants via the Foundation-initiated, peer-reviewed proposal processes described in the 21st Century Science Initiative.
