Overview

The definitive guide to 21st century investigations of multilingual neuroscience The Handbook of the Neuroscience of Multilingualism provides a comprehensive survey of neurocognitive investigations of multiple-language speakers. Prominent scholar John W. Schwieter offers a unique collection of works from globally recognized researchers in neuroscience, psycholinguistics, neurobiology, psychology, neuroimaging, and others, to provide a multidisciplinary overview of relevant topics. Authoritative coverage of state-of-the-art research provides readers with fundamental knowledge of significant theories and methods, language impairments and disorders, and neural representations, functions, and processes of the multilingual brain. Focusing on up-to-date theoretical and experimental research, this timely handbook explores new directions of study and examines significant findings in the rapidly evolving field of multilingual neuroscience. Discussions on the bilingual advantage debate, recovery and rehabilitation patterns in multilingual aphasia, and the neurocognitive effects of multilingualism throughout the lifespan allow informed investigation of contemporary issues. Presents the first handbook-length examination of the neuroscience and neurolinguistics of multilingualism Demonstrates how neuroscience and multilingualism intersect several areas of research, such as neurobiology and experimental psychology Includes works from prominent international scholars and researchers to provide global perspective Reflects cutting-edge research and promising areas of future study in the dynamic field of multilingual neuroscience The Handbook of the Neuroscience of Multilingualism is an invaluable resource for researchers and scholars in areas including multilingualism, psycholinguistics, second language acquisition, and cognitive science. This versatile work is also an indispensable addition to the classroom, providing advanced undergraduate and graduate students a thorough overview of the field.

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, UK 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, UK 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, USA 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, USA
