Viorica Marian may be known for a viral tweet, but she’s also a psycholinguist, cognitive scientist and the Ralph and Jean Sundin Endowed Professor of Communication Sciences and Disorders at Northwestern University’s School of Communication. There she conducts research on bilingualism/multilingualism and the consequences of knowing more than one language for the human linguistic, cognitive, and neural architectures. During the show, Viorica explains the science behind her research, and we talk everything from bilingualism’s effect on cognition to Yanny & Laurel. We also discuss her now famous tweet and the discourse that happens online.
