Meeting Description:

The workshop aims to bring together researchers, students and funders who are
interested in various cognitive and neural aspects of retention, attrition, and
aging in language and memory, but who generally do not interact much - in
particular people from the Cognitive Neuroscience community who study memory or
language, and researchers from the fields of Bilingualism and Second Language
Acquisition (SLA).
