              What exactly does it mean for two languages to coexist in the same brain? How do babies exposed to different languages differentiate between them? And how does cognitive decline affect the two languages? Bilingualism is quickly becoming the rule rather than the exception as more ...than half of the world's population is able to communicate in more than one language. In The Bilingual Brain, leading expert Albert Costa guides us through the latest research exploring the many fascinating questions raised by bilingualism: from how children exposed to two different languages determine between them to how it influences our decisions. Filled with memorable examples from cutting-edge studies, The Bilingual Brain shows that bilingualism can help us better understand how language works.

              Una fascinante aproximacion al funcionamiento del bilinguismo en el cerebro humano y como este adquiere y procesa el lenguaje. Todos estamos interesados en el lenguaje y nos hemos preguntado alguna vez como el cerebro humano lo adquiere y procesa. Pero, como conviven dos lenguas ...en un mismo cerebro y que implicaciones tiene esa convivencia?Para entender el funcionamiento del lenguaje el bilinguismo es fundamental. Como consiguen los bebes expuestos a dos lenguas diferenciarlas? Son las trayectorias de aprendizaje diferentes entre bebes bilingues y monolingues? Como se deterioran las dos lenguas tras un dano cerebral? En este fascinante libro, Albert Costa busca arrojar luz sobre estas y muchas otras cuestiones a la vez que fomenta la curiosidad del lector acerca de uno de los aspectos mas fascinantes de la ciencia cognitiva: el lenguaje.ENGLISH DESCRIPTION
