Undergraduate Student: Communication Sciences and Disorders, minoring in Spanish


Biography:

I am a junior, from New Jersey. 

Project Summary:

I will be travelling to Palenque, Colombia where they speak Spanish and Lengua Palenquera, their creole language. I will be testing language proficiency in Lengua Palenquera and Spanish. Then I will test their cognition through tests such as the Simon task. The purpose of this study is to determine if bilingualism increases cognitive ability and executive control.
