Ellen Bialystok, an expert in cognitive psychology from York University in Toronto, Canada, will discuss the connections among bilingualism, emotional intelligence and brain development. Dr. Bialystok’s research shows how in the bilingual brain the early development of some cognitive functions helps bilinguals manage multiple tasks more easily.
Ellen Bialystok is a pioneer in bilingualism. She has been working on bilingualism for nearly 40 years and uses many methods, ranging from psychology to behavioral sciences and modern imagery, to support and deepen her research.
