> When someone learns a second language, is it represented in the
> brain in the same place as the first language or in a different
> place? Much may depend on how old one is when the second language
> is learned. Studies using the new fMRI technology now supplement
> behavioral/cognitive studies of biligualism and confirm the
> importance of age at which bilingal ability is attained.
> However, these fMRi studies show the importance not only of age of
> second language acquisition,m but also of which language area one
> considers: anterior (Broca's) or posterior (Wernicke's).
> LECTURE IS AT 6:00 pm, IS FREE OF CHARGE, AND OPEN TO ALL.
