Overview

Neuroscientific approaches to multilingualism have seen extensive growth recently. With this expansive development come a variety of identifiable subareas which indicate an exciting and flourishing field. The Handbook of the Neuroscience of Multilingualism is the first handbook-length resource to capture the growing and fruitful intersection between cognitive neuroscience and multilingualism. Authoritative state-of-the-art works are organized within several sections which introduce prominent theories and methods, discuss neural representations in the multilingual brain, explore the functions of the multilingual brain, and engage the reader with a dialogue on the cognitive and neurocognitive effects of multilingualism. This indispensable resource serves as an informative overview for researchers interested in multilingualism from cognitive and neurocognitive perspectives and the logic behind its theoretical and experimental approaches.

Reviews

This is a delightful book. It is essential reading for everyone wanting to do research on the topic, but it will also be of great interest to everyone else interested in what distinguishes a multilingual brain from a brain that knows only one language. Marc Brysbaert, Ghent University, Belgium This handbook provides an astonishingly detailed and extensive survey of research into the nature of the multilingual brain, drawing on neuroscience, psychology, linguistics, and many other fields. It serves as an encyclopaedic work of reference and a place in which a vast number of expert researchers provide extensive theoretical insights into almost every topic within this important and exciting area. Martin Pickering, University of Edinburgh, Scotland In this considerable achievement, Prof. Schwieter has assembled a landmark handbook which covers a wide range of scientific inquiry on the multilingual brain. The handbook is a one-of-a-kind resource in which he and dozens of contributors have created an absolute must-read for everyone interested in multilingualism. Cathy Price, University College London, England Dr. Schwieter has put together a wonderfully comprehensive handbook on multilingualism in the mind and brain. He has assembled leading lights from the many fields that contribute to this enterprise, and the handbook comprehensively covers a wide range of key theoretical and empirical topics. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in bilingualism or multilingualism, as well as more generally to students of language and neuroscience. Michael Ullman, Georgetown University, United States This comprehensive collection synthesizes the growing body of knowledge on the intersection between multilingualism and cognitive neuroscience. The book provides excellent guidance on what is known-and what remains to be learned-about how interdisciplinary studies of brain and cognitive function inform our understanding of multilingualism. It is a valuable resource for both experienced researchers and students. Janet van Hell, Pennsylvania State University, United States
