The consequences of bilingualism for the mind and the brain
In the last two decades there has been an upsurge of research on the bilingual mind and brain. Although the world is multilingual, only recently have cognitive and language scientists come to see that the use of two or more languages provides a unique lens to examine the neural plasticity engaged by language experience. In this talk, Judith F. Kroll, Ph.D. will consider the consequences that bilingualism holds more generally for cognition and learning, and demonstrate how the observed consequences may be shaped by the opportunities available to use each language.
