Project Portfolio

What are the cognitive and biological basis of accent-based code switching and how do they impact our thinking processes?

Started Dec. 1, 2023

Abstract or project description

This review/research paper will cover several neurological and psychological subtopics; the reason people feel the need to code switch between accents, how our cognitive and thinking processes may be affected, which regions in the brain are involved in accent based code-switching and how they are affected, and how people's perception of the world can be different with a new accent. It will include perspectives of both, the speaker and the person listening. It will include information of previous studies, including images of brain scans for stronger evidence.
