Interviews and Slideshows

Patrick Wong, Ph.D.

"Neural efficiency and language learning"

Language learning and use engages a large network of brain regions. Analyses of several imaging experiments demonstrate the global and local network properties that are tied to individual differences in language learning and processing. Successful adult language learners tend to show more efficient global network properties. Similarly, relative to older adults, younger adults show more efficient brain network as they process language.

Professor Patrick Wong is the director of the Laboratory for language, Learning and the Brain of the Chinese University of Hong Kong. In this interview, Professor Wong explains the important role brain networks play in language learning and use.
