Research on language processing in the brain has increased and has become prominent in
the past decades, fostered mainly by the adoption of neuroimaging techniques. For instance,
language studies on the lesion paradigm, with which neuropsychology was born, have
considerably improved by the use of refined neuroimaging techniques (Price, Noppeney &
Friston, 2006). Some of the techniques mainly used in research on language processing are
functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), positron emission topography (PET),
magnetoencephalography (MEG), electroencephalography (EEG), and functional nearinfrared
spectroscopy (fNIRS), among others, which have allowed researchers to acquire in
vivo brain images of the order of seconds or even milliseconds (for a review please see
Démonet, Thierry and Cardebat, 2005). The availability of these increasingly refined
techniques, allied to the research interest in understanding language processing and its related
cognitive components has led to the emergence of a new research field, named
In this field, a growing topic of study is bi/multilingualism and its neural correlates.
Neuroimaging research on bi/multilingualism has investigated both comprehension and
production, by adopting a variety of experimental designs and criteria for participants’
recruitment. This diversity, although informative, has represented a challenge for drawing
general conclusions from the data.
