Using the N400 component to examine variation in monolingual and bilingual language processing

This team aims to understand differences in language processing between bilingual and monolingual speakers and how these differences contribute to neuroplasticity. Their Koret project will use EEG to discover how semantic predictions are formed and whether knowledge of multiple languages influences these predictions. This work will shed light on how sociocultural factors and language experiences shape bilingual language processing, paving the way for further research on the potential neuroprotective effects of increased plasticity in language-related cortices.
