Expert Performance And The Multilingual Brain

Speaker:
Barbara Moser-Mercer, Alexis Hervais-Adelmann
Abstract:
In order to develop and maintain expertise in the  highly complex cognitive skill of interpreting the human brain  seemingly undergoes neuro-physiological changes. The skill of  simultaneous interpreting is acquired during extensive training;  we can thus assume that changes in cognitive processing and  the resources required for skill execution produce long-term  functional and structural changes in the brain, both in general  control areas as well as in domain-specific representational  areas. This presentation identifies some of these general and  specific areas based on a longitudinal study of novice  interpreters.
