Dr Roberto Filippi to give talk on the multi-linguistic experience
6 June 2017
Dr Roberto Filippi from the Centre for Language, Literacy and Numeracy: Research & Practice (LLN:R&P) will give a talk during a day long workshop at the University of Reading later this month.
The workshop, 'Bi-/Multilingualism and the Declining Brain', will bring together early career and established researchers in the fields of second language acquisition and cognitive/clinical neuroscience, and will comprise a state-of-the-art snapshot in the field, as well as discuss potential future directions for research.
Professor Filippi's talk will discuss the effects of a multi-linguistic experience across the human lifespan, taking a developmental, neuroconstructivist approach. He discussed the relationship between bilingualism and attention spans with The Naked Scientists in May.
The event is open to all and free to attend.
