DEUSTO NeuroLab research team (Faculty of Psychology and Education) has recently published the research article “Executive functions mediate the association between bilingualism and creativity in preadolescents” in the international Scientific Journal Thinking Skills and Creativity.
The purpose of this study was to examine the role of several neurocognitive functions (executive functions, selective attention and processing speed) as mediators in the relationship between bilingualism and creativity.
Results suggest that the level of bilingualism is related to creativity through the mediation of executive functions. This is relevant for the educational field as it points out the importance of acquiring good competence in both languages.
