• Neurocognition

    This module provides information about the neurocognitive processes that might be important to consider as a teacher in a multilingual classroom. These processes encompass the ability to concentrate, remember things, process information, learn, speak and understand the information. The module is divided in two sections.

    Section 1 addresses the neurocognitive processes occurring in multilinguals, including the neuroanatomy and brain circuits of bilingualism and discusses how exposure to multiple languages impacts cognitive processing.

    Section 2 deals with these processes during language learning, addressing different aspects of second and third language learning and with bilingualism/multilingualism: neuroanatomy, strategies, contexts, memory systems and individual differences.
