Studies examining the cognitive effects of a second language acquired in the context of linguistic immersion school program have led to contradictory results (e.g., Nicolay & Poncelet, 2013; Simonis et al., 2019). The main purpose of the present study was to determine if the attentional and executive skills of pupils attending a bilingual immersion program depend on the type of second language learned and the time spent in immersion classes. We assessed a range of attentional/executive abilities such as alerting, selective auditory attention, divided attention, cognitive flexibility and working memory in French-speaking 2nd and 5th graders attending immersion classes in English or Dutch since kindergarten as well as in control children attending ordinary classes. Arithmetic abilities were also assessed. In 2nd grade, the results showed no difference between English immersed, Dutch immersed and control groups for the attentional and executive tasks. However, for arithmetic tasks, the English immersed group performed worse than the two other groups. In fifth grade, the English and Dutch immersed groups outperformed the control group on the cognitive flexibility task. Furthermore, the Dutch immersed group outperformed the control group on the working memory task. Finally, the Dutch immersed group outperformed the English immersed and the control groups on arithmetic tasks. These results are discussed in terms of the length of time spent in linguistic immersion and the type of language learned. [less ▲]

In visual search tasks, neglect patients tend to explore and repeatedly re-cancel stimuli on the ipsilesional side, as if they did not realize that they had previously examined the rightward locations favoured by their lateral bias. The aim of this study was to explore the hypothesis that a spatial working memory deficit explains these ipsilesional re-cancellation errors in neglect patients. For the first time, we evaluated spatial working memory and re-cancellation through separate and independent tasks in a group of patients with right hemisphere damage and a diagnosis of left neglect. Results showed impaired spatial working memory in neglect patients. Compared to the control group, neglect patients cancelled fewer targets and made more re-cancellations both on the left side and on the right side. The spatial working memory deficit appears to be related to re-cancellations, but only for some neglect patients. Alternative interpretations of re-exploration of space are discussed. [less ▲]
