Project Description

More than half of the world population is individuals who speak two languages (i.e., bilinguals). This project will look at how bilinguals handle two languages with one brain, focusing on two related but also independent aspects. This project is concerned with lexical representations and selection, attempting to depict the dynamics of language control in bilinguals. In terms of methodologies, a combination of experimental psychology, eye-tracking, and event-related brain potentials will be used.

Funding Notes
