Compared to monolinguals, the studied bilingual children, who had had five to ten years of bilingual exposure, averaged higher scores in cognitive performance on tests and had greater attention focus, distraction resistance, decision-making, judgment and responsiveness to feedback.
The correlated neuroimaging (f MRI scans) of these children revealed greater activity in the prefrontal cortex networks directing these and other executive functions. This increased executive function activation in the brains of children in bilingual settings extends beyond the translation of language intake and output.
The literature exploring the executive function correlates of bilingualism is vast, but to date, few studies have concentrated on children, for whom the bilingual advantage appears even more inconsistent than for adults.
We investigate a highly heterogeneous group of children (in terms of bilingual experience and socioeconomic status) and identify the critical threshold of bilingual experience from which an advantage can be observed at group level.
