Multilingual experience has widespread consequences for functions ranging from cognitive control to speech processing to language learning. Practice juggling multiple languages leads to functional and structural changes to the brain, such as to the prefrontal cortex (PFC), anterior cingulate cortex (ACC), caudate nucleus (CN), cerebellum, brainstem, Heschel’s gyrus (HG), putamen, superior temporal gyrus (STG), inferior frontal gyrus (IFG), anterior temporal lobe (ATL), and supramarginal gyrus (SMG) in the inferior parietal cortex (IPC)
