Neurolinguistics Aspects of Second Language Acquisition

Fundamental breakthroughs in the neurosciences, combined with technical innovations for measuring brain activity, are shedding new light on the neural basis of second language (L2) processing, and on its relationship to native language processing (L1) (Perani & Abutalebi, 2005).  Over the past two decades, a large body of neuroimaging studies
