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 looks into influences of speaking two languages on nonverbal cognitive skills such as executive functions. A number of linguistic (e.g., phonology) and cognitive factors (e.g., emotion and consciousness) will be taken into considerations in the framework of the above two main issues. In terms of methodologies, a combination of experimental psychology, eye-tracking, and event-related brain potentials will be used.

Funding Notes

Requirements: We ask for a good honours degree of 2:1 or above and generally a masters or pending masters (merit or distinction) in Psychology or a related discipline.
