The Multilingual Mind Across the Lifespan
How does multilingualism affect our mind in early childhood and later? And is it true that older people who speak more languages develop dementia later than others?
Are babies sensitive to different sounds in languages they do not know, and is there a difference between monolingual and multilingual babies? Tune in to our event to find out! Photo: Nadia Frantsen/UiO
The laboratory researchers at MultiLing will address these and similar questions in short lectures at the event "The Multilingual Mind Across the Lifespan".
The event is a part of Forskningsdagene. After the lectures there will be an opportunity for discussion and questions. The event will be held in English and Norwegian and will be live-streamed. In-person attendance is free of charge, but will require a ticket. A link to reserve a ticket will be published Monday, 14. September. Join us for informative talks and interesting discussions!
