Sequential congruency effects reveal differences in disengagement of attention for monolingual and bilingual young adults.

Abstract

Three studies examined the hypothesis that bilinguals can more rapidly disengage attention from irrelevant information than monolinguals by investigating the impact of previous trial congruency on performance in a simple flanker task.
