How does multilingualism affect our mind in early childhood and later? And is it true that older people who speak more languages get dementia later than others?  The laboratory researchers at MultiLing will address these and similar questions in short lectures at the event “The multilingual mind across the lifespan”. After the lectures there will be an opportunity for discussion and questions. The event will be held in English and Norwegian.
