    Brain Cogn 74:347-57. 2010
    ..Moreover, the neural correlates associated with more efficient suppression of interference were different in bilinguals than in monolinguals, suggesting a bilingual-specific network for cognitive control...
  2. pmc Lifelong bilingualism maintains white matter integrity in older adults
    Gigi Luk
    Rotman Research Institute at Baycrest, Toronto, Ontario M6A2E1, Canada
    J Neurosci 31:16808-13. 2011
    ..These results are the first evidence that maintained WM integrity is related to lifelong naturally occurring experience; the resulting enhanced structural and functional connectivity may provide a neural basis for "brain reserve."..
  3. pmc Bilingualism: consequences for mind and brain
    Ellen Bialystok
    Department of Psychology, York University, 4700 Keele Street, Toronto, ON, M3J 1P3, Canada
    Trends Cogn Sci 16:240-50. 2012
    ..Cognitive reserve is a crucial research area in the context of an aging population; the possibility that bilingualism contributes to cognitive reserve is therefore of growing importance as populations become increasingly diverse...
  4. pmc Brain network activity in monolingual and bilingual older adults
    Cheryl L Grady
    Rotman Research Institute at Baycrest, 3560 Bathurst Street, Toronto, Ontario, Canada M6A2E1 University of Toronto, Toronto, Ontario, Canada Electronic address
    Neuropsychologia 66:170-81. 2015
    ..This bilingual difference in network connectivity suggests that language experience begun in childhood and continued throughout adulthood influences brain networks in ways that may provide benefits in later life. ..
  5. doi Cognitive control and lexical access in younger and older bilinguals
    Ellen Bialystok
    Department of Psychology, York University, Toronto, Ontario, Canada
    J Exp Psychol Learn Mem Cogn 34:859-73. 2008
    ..The confirmation of this pattern in the same participants is discussed in terms of a suggested explanation of how the need to manage 2 language systems leads to these different outcomes for cognitive and linguistic functions...
  6. doi The effect of lifelong bilingualism on regional grey and white matter volume
    Rosanna K Olsen
    Rotman Research Institute, Baycrest Health Sciences, 3560 Bathurst Street, Toronto, ON, Canada M6A 2E1
    Brain Res 1612:128-39. 2015
    ..These results underscore previous findings implicating an association between bilingualism and preserved frontal and temporal lobe function in aging. This article is part of a Special Issue entitled SI: Memory Å. ..
