63.A practical demonstration of the cognitive advantages of bilinguals in dual task paradigmes. Article paru au Canada (juin 2010)

Ce n'est pas une raison. Les bilingues précoces sont moins dangereux au volant quand ils utilisent un téléphone portable mais ce n'est pas une raison pour le faire.

C'est interdit. Et l'argumentation ne tiendra pas face au représentant des forces de l'ordre qui viendra vous verbaliser.

Benefits of Bilingualism in Dual Task Performance: Vehicle Operation While Speaking on a Cellular Telephone Jason A. Telner, David L. Wiesenthal, Ellen Bialystok Department of Psychology, York University Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Martin York Computer Technologies Kingston, Ontario, Canada Abstract: One of the most common dual task challenges involves driving while speaking on a cellular telephone. Bilingualism provides performance advantages in dual task paradigms involving divided attention, compared to monolinguals. It was hypothesized that bilinguals should demonstrate performance advantages when driving and performing a variety of verbal tasks into a simulated hands-free cellular telephone compared to monolinguals. 82 university students participated in the study following assessment of their linguistic fluency. The driving task was performed on the driving simulation program Drivesim 4.00 and the experiment consisted of both single driving and speaking conditions, as well as dual conditions with both driving and speaking tasks. Bilinguals demonstrated significantly fewer decrements to their driving performance when speaking on a cellular telephone compared to monolinguals, providing a practical demonstration of the cognitive advantages of bilinguals in dual task paradigms.
