Lørdagsuniversitetet: An ocean of experiences: language and the brain across the lifespan

Being able to speak more than one language has known benefits – it boosts career prospects, makes it easier to communicate abroad, and provides deeper insight to other cultures. In recent decades, researchers have studied the brain and cognitive effects of bilingual language experience and found that experience with more than one language also seems to (quite literally) change the structure and function of your brain.


Meet Toms Voits, postdoc. at institutt for språk og kultur to learn more about what happens to the brain when it has to juggle more than one language, and how this can help maintain healthy mind and brain as we age.

This is lecture is a part of Forskningsdagene 2022. See you in Rødbanken.
