How Does the Bilingual Brain Process Language?


WHEN January 26, 2023
4-5:30 PM EST WHERE 19 Washington Square North WHO NYU Abu Dhabi Institute in New York Open to the Public

The majority of the world can communicate in multiple languages. How do people manage to speak in just one language when they have to, but can easily go back and forth between them when the situation allows them to? What are the neural mechanisms that allow them to do this effortlessly? Through a series of neuroimaging studies that tested multilingual individuals, including Arabic-English bilinguals from the UAE, this talk discusses how the brain achieves this fit.

This event is open to the general public. Registration is required. All attendees must be prepared to present proof of compliance with the University’s COVID-19 vaccination requirements if asked to do so.
