Arturo E. Hernandez




Joined University of Houston faculty in 2003 following 6 years as an Assistant Professor of Psychology at the University of California, Santa Barbara. During the past fifteen years, he has been investigating the nature of language processing using both behavioral and neuroimaging methods to inform his work. His view is very much in line with the current emergentist view of language in which language development, processing and its neural bases are a reflection of multiple processes interacting at multiple levels. Although his work has focused on word level processing with bilingual speakers, he uses this focus as a manner to investigate questions of interest to cognitive and developmental psychologists. This is reflected in theoretical work in which he makes a link between learning in non-linguistic, monolingual and bilingual domains (Hernandez & Li, 2007). Dr. Hernandez is also affiliated with the UH Cognitive Science program and with the Human Neuroimaging Laboratory at the Baylor College of Medicine.

This course explores the brain bases of bilingualism by discussing literature relevant to differences in age of initial learning, proficiency, and control in the nonverbal, single language and dual-language literature. Participants will learn about the latest research related to how humans learn one or two languages and other cognitive skills.
