Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Cognition
  • Linguistics
  • Cognitive psychology

Ellen Bialystok focuses on Cognitive psychology, Neuroscience of multilingualism, Cognition, Developmental psychology and Cognitive development. Her Cognitive psychology research includes themes of Language development, Language proficiency, Task analysis and Stroop effect. Her Neuroscience of multilingualism study is focused on Linguistics in general.

Her biological study deals with issues like Literacy, which deal with fields such as Phonology and Reading. Her Cognition research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Discrimination learning and Recall. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Context, Representation and Dual language.

Her most cited work include:

  • Bilingualism in development : language, literacy, and cognition (1456 citations)
  • Bilingualism, Aging, and Cognitive Control: Evidence From the Simon Task. (1120 citations)
  • Bilingualism: consequences for mind and brain (689 citations)

What are the main themes of her work throughout her whole career to date?

Her main research concerns Neuroscience of multilingualism, Cognitive psychology, Cognition, Linguistics and Developmental psychology. Her Neuroscience of multilingualism research focuses on Cognitive reserve and how it relates to Cognitive decline. The study incorporates disciplines such as Nonverbal communication, Working memory, Short-term memory, Language development and Task analysis in addition to Cognitive psychology.

Her Cognition research includes elements of Representation, Cognitive science and Set. Ellen Bialystok has included themes like Second language and Verbal fluency test in her Developmental psychology study. Her Reading study incorporates themes from Literacy and Writing system.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Neuroscience of multilingualism (59.14%)
  • Cognitive psychology (46.59%)
  • Cognition (37.99%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Neuroscience of multilingualism (59.14%)
  • Cognitive psychology (46.59%)
  • Cognition (37.99%)

In recent papers she was focusing on the following fields of study:

Neuroscience of multilingualism, Cognitive psychology, Cognition, Developmental psychology and Electroencephalography are her primary areas of study. The concepts of her Neuroscience of multilingualism study are interwoven with issues in Nonverbal communication, Audiology, Young adult, Working memory and Dementia. The Cognitive psychology study combines topics in areas such as Executive functions, Attentional control, Control and Multilingualism.

Her Cognition study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Semantics, Phonology and Cognitive decline. Her Developmental psychology study which covers Language proficiency that intersects with Literacy. Her work deals with themes such as Facilitation and Stimulus, which intersect with Electroencephalography.

Between 2016 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • The Bilingual Adaptation: How Minds Accommodate Experience (316 citations)
  • The language and social background questionnaire: Assessing degree of bilingualism in a diverse population. (99 citations)
  • Neural correlates of cognitive processing in monolinguals and bilinguals. (92 citations)

In her most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Cognition
  • Linguistics
  • Artificial intelligence

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Neuroscience of multilingualism, Cognitive psychology, Cognition, Developmental psychology and Multilingualism. Her study in Neuroscience of multilingualism is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Young adult, Intelligence quotient, Audiology and Electroencephalography. She has researched Cognitive psychology in several fields, including Nonverbal communication, Visual perception, Child development, Task switching and Attentional control.

Her research in Cognition is mostly focused on Cognitive development. Her research in Developmental psychology intersects with topics in Language proficiency and Disengagement theory. The various areas that Ellen Bialystok examines in her Multilingualism study include Picture naming, Age differences and Word lists by frequency.
