    Department of PsychiatryUniversity of California, San Diego, CA 92093, USA
    J Exp Psychol Gen 135:462-83. 2006
    ..The 2-step analysis reveals a common mechanism for the age and bilingualism effects and implies that age has both positive and negative effects on retrieval...

    Tamar H Gollan
    Department of Psychiatry, University of California, San Diego, La Jolla, CA 92093 0949, USA
    J Exp Psychol Learn Mem Cogn 35:640-65. 2009
    ..Voluntary switch costs reveal an expanded role for inhibitory control in bilingual language production and imply a mandatory separation by language in bilingual lexical selection...
  3. doi request reprint Does bilingualism twist your tongue?
    Tamar H Gollan
    Department of Psychiatry, University of California, San Diego, La Jolla, CA 92093 0948, USA
    Cognition 125:491-7. 2012
    ..More generally, these findings suggest that experience with sound structures (and not simply their intrinsic complexity) shapes sub-lexical processing for all speakers...
  4. pmc Degree of bilingualism predicts age of diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease in low-education but not in highly educated Hispanics
    Tamar H Gollan
    Department of Psychiatry, University of California, San Diego, La Jolla, CA 92093 0948, United States
    Neuropsychologia 49:3826-30. 2011
    ..More generally, these data support analogies between the effects of bilingualism and "cognitive reserve" and suggest an upper limit on the extent to which reserve can function to delay dementia...
  5. pmc Cross-language intrusion errors in aging bilinguals reveal the link between executive control and language selection
    Tamar H Gollan
    Department of Psychiatry, University of California, San Diego, 9500 Gilman Dr, 0948, La Jolla, CA 92093 0948, USA
    Psychol Sci 22:1155-64. 2011
    ..These results imply that executive control plays a role in maintaining language selection, but they also suggest the presence of independent forces that prevent language-selection errors...
  6. pmc Frequency drives lexical access in reading but not in speaking: the frequency-lag hypothesis
    Tamar H Gollan
    Department of Psychiatry, University of California, San Diego, La Jolla, CA, 92093 0948, USA
    J Exp Psychol Gen 140:186-209. 2011
    ..The apparently more interactive process in production than comprehension could simply reflect a greater number of frequency-sensitive processing stages in production...
  7. pmc Accessibility of the nondominant language in picture naming: a counterintuitive effect of dementia on bilingual language production
    Tamar H Gollan
    Department of Psychiatry, University of California, San Diego, CA 92093 0949, USA
    Neuropsychologia 48:1356-66. 2010
    ..The greater vulnerability of the dominant language may reflect the increased probability of AD affecting richer semantic representations associated with dominant compared to nondominant language names...

    Tamar H Gollan
    Department of Psychiatry, University of California, San Diego, La Jolla, California 92093 0949, USA

    Tamar H Gollan
    Department of Psychiatry, University of California, San Diego, USA
    Brain Lang 99:289-303. 2006
    ..Instead we propose that AD entails a semantic deficit, and that strong associations involve more semantic processing than weak associations (in all speakers)...
  10. ncbi request reprint Proper names get stuck on bilingual and monolingual speakers' tip of the tongue equally often
    Tamar H Gollan
    Department of Psychiatry, University of California, San Diego, La Jolla, CA, USA
    Neuropsychology 19:278-87. 2005
    ..Bilingual disadvantages may be limited to representing multiple forms for individual meanings; proper names improved naming because they have essentially the same form across languages...
  11. ncbi request reprint What is a TOT? Cognate and translation effects on tip-of-the-tongue states in Spanish-English and tagalog-English bilinguals
    Tamar H Gollan
    Department of Psychiatry, University of California, San Diego, CA, US
    J Exp Psychol Learn Mem Cogn 30:246-69. 2004

  12. ncbi request reprint Semantic and letter fluency in Spanish-English bilinguals
    Tamar H Gollan
    Department of Psychiatry, University of California, San Diego, La Jolla 92093 0109, USA
    Neuropsychology 16:562-76. 2002
    ..Surprisingly, bilinguals' fluency scores did not improve when they used words in both languages. This result suggests that voluntary language switching incurs a processing cost...
  13. ncbi request reprint Two routes to grammatical gender: evidence from Hebrew
    T H Gollan
    University of California, San Diego, USA
    J Psycholinguist Res 30:627-51. 2001

    Tamar H Gollan
    University of California San Diego, Department of Psychiatry, California 92093 0949, USA

    Robin Thompson
    The University of California, San Diego, USA
