The Bilingual Brain as Revealed by Functional Neuroimaging.
Abutalebi, Jubin; Cappa, Stefano F.; Perani, Daniela
Bilingualism: Language and Cognition, v4 n2 p179-90 Aug 2001
Functional neuroimaging of bilinguals and monolinguals used in conjunction with experimental cognitive tasks has been successful in establishing functional specialization as a principle of brain organization in humans. Consistent results show that attained proficiency and possibly language exposure are more important than age of acquisition as a determinant of the cerebral representation of languages in bilinguals and polyglots.
