Satellite Symposium

The Bilingual Brain – A Lifelong Perspective


August 15, 2018, 8:30 am – 4:30 pm, Domaine Cataraqui, Québec City
This satellite symposium reflects on language learning across the lifespan and how our experience with language and multiple language learning informs questions of brain plasticity and organisation. Our keynote speakers – Richard Aslin, Albert Costa, Nina Kraus, Monika Molnar and Susanne Reiterer – explore the fundamental principles of developing language from a bilingual perspective and implications for brain organization across the life span. In addition to featuring several experts in the field of bilingualism and brain plasticity, the symposium will feature short oral presentations. The deadline to submit an abstract is April 18. If you would like to be considered as a presenter, please submit your abstract.

The symposium is organized by the Center for Research on Brain, Language and Music (CRBLM) and the Quebec Brain Imaging Consortium (CINQ).
