Memory for words and gist in monolingual and bilingual speakers

Memory for words and gist in monolingual and bilingual speakers

Being bilingual provides many benefits such as easier communication during travel, ability to read books and watch films in two languages, and having more work opportunities. But how does bilingualism affect memory? Dr. Agnieszka Konopka from the University of Aberdeen will present her research findings related to memory performance and memory errors in monolingual and bilingual individuals.

The lecture, organized by Interdisciplinary Center for Applied Cognitive Studies is a part of the series "Fridays with Cognitive Psychology".

The lecture will be delivered in English. Free admission.

Memory for words and memory for gist in monolingual and bilingual speakers

Language is our primary vehicle for communicating meaning. Memory research has traditionally focused on the types of memory errors that monolingual listeners make in a variety of contexts and learning conditions. By comparison, we know relatively little about how linguistic proficiency influences memory accuracy in bilingual listeners. Dr. Konopka will present a series of studies comparing memory performance and memory errors in monolingual and bilingual listeners. Memory performance will be compared at two levels, including: memory for linguistic detail (i.e. verbatim memory) and memory for semantic information (i.e., gist memory). Bilinguals frequently outperform monolinguals in such tasks, and Dr. Konopka will discuss possible reasons for these language-supported memory benefits.

Speaker

Agnieszka Konopka, Ph.D. – lecturer at the School of Psychology, University of Aberdeen. Her research addresses questions in language production and memory for language. In her work on language production, she focuses on incrementality and flexibility in message and sentence formulation while in her research on memory for language, she examines native and non-native speakers' memory for simple sentences. Bridging the gap between research on bilingual sentence processing and reconstructive memory, she examines how the process of learning a language impacts the way people remember information presented in this language.

 

Thanks to the lecture of Dr. Agnieszka Konopka from the University of Aberdeen, we have an opportunity to learn how linking divergent research fields and adopting non-standard perspectives can lead to advancements in cognitive psychology.

Fridays with Cognitive Psychology

The aim of this lecture series, organized by the Interdisciplinary Center for Applied Cognitive Studies, is to popularize cognitive psychology and to show how the results of research in this field may improve understanding of many processes and help solve everyday problems.
