Psychology of Language Learning And the Brain

Welcome to our research lab!

Is bilingual immersion education a risk factor for children with developmental language disorders and/or learning disorders (e.g., dyslexia)?

What impact does bilingual immersion education have on language acquisition and the human cognition in general?

How are multiple languages represented in the bilingual brain? Why do children learn language so easily compared with adults?

What are the cognitive underpinnings of developmental and acquired language pathologies (e.g., dyslexia, aphasia, stuttering, ...)?

What are the cognitive risk factors of dyslexia, dyscalculia, and their comorbidity?

How does the human memory system support language development?

Can we boost language learning capacities in adults?
