Cerebro bilingüe y cognición: Correlatos neuropsicológicos y psicofisiológicos


Currently, bilingualism is associated not only with high communicative competence in a second language, but also with other cognitive abilities. This presentation will be based on a brief description of the scientific disciplines that investigate the brain and the techniques they use, reflecting on the methodological difficulties that exist in research in this field. Next, some concepts about brain regions responsible for language will be presented, and finally the neuropsychological and psychophysiological findings of bilingualism in the field of cognition will be analyzed, with special attention to the development of executive functions.
