One mind, two languages:

Welcome to the Lemhöfer Language Lab

We are a research group that investigates, very generally speaking, the (neuro-)cognition of bi- and multilingualism: How are two or more languages handled within the same brain?

We are based at the Centre for Cognition, which is part of the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour at the Radboud University in Nijmegen, The Netherlands. Head of the group is Kristin Lemhöfer.
