The effects of bilingualism on age-related cognitive and neurobiological declines

Grants and Contracts Details


Normal human aging is associated with decline of executive control functions. Recent evidence suggests that bilingualism may attenuate some of these age-related declines by promoting neuroplasticity and/or compensatory brain reserve. By providing a more precise understanding of the mechanisms that are bolstered by bilingualism, the present proposal will help identify cognitive/neurobiological variables that are malleable in response to cognitive training and rehabilitation in aging.
