MemoLingua or “Exploration of the neuroprotective benefit provided by multilingualism acting as proxy for cognitive reserve in the prevention of cognitive impairment and decline”

• The first step of the project was to design a relevant fMRI paradigm. We chose to set up an event-related design to conduct a memory task adapted to a multilingual population.

• The second step was to approach cognitive reserve via the whole fMRI experiment implemented, alternating steps of tasks and of rest.

• A cohort was conducted on the Luxembourgish general population over the age of 64.
