Language Lateralization in Bilingual Females: ERPs in Bilinguals

Georgia Andreou, Anargyros Karapetsas.

Cerebral lateralization for native and foreign language in bilingual females was investigated by event-related potentials (ERPs). ERPs (N1, P1, N2, P2) obtained from left and right occipital and temporal lobes, were elicited in 30 highly proficient bilingual females in response to visually presented linguistic stimuli. The absence of statistically significant (p< .05) differences between left and right occipital and temporal lobes in all the components of the waveforms obtained, indicates a bilateral pattern of lateralization in bilingual females for both their native and foreign language.
