Research examines the effect of experience on cognitive ability across the lifespan. The primary experience examined is bilingualism but musical training is also a focus. Studies examine effects on cognitive development and cognitive aging. Developmental studies include the relation between language and cognitive development, literacy, and bilingualism. Research methodologies include both behavioural and neuroimaging approaches.
