Abstract:

The human mind is a marvelous device that effectively regulates mental
activities and facilitates amendable cognitive behaviour across several
domains such as attention, memory, and language processing. For multilinguals,
the mind also represents and manages more than one language system—a mental
exercise which may lead to cognitive benefits. Through an in-depth exploration
of these issues, Cognitive Control and Consequences of Multilingualism
presents original studies and new perspectives which are cutting-edge and
feature traditional and innovative methodologies such as ERPs, fMRIs,
eye-tracking, picture- and numeral naming, the Simon, flanker, and oculomotor
Stroop tasks, among others. The studies in this book investigate prominent
themes in multilingual language control for both comprehension and production
and probe the notion of a cognitive advantage that may be a result of
multilingualism. The growing number of researchers, practitioners, and
students alike will find this volume to be an instrumental source of readings
that illuminates how one mind accommodates and controls multiple languages and
the consequences it has on human cognition in general.
