Is there a bilingual advantage on interference-control tasks? A multiverse meta-analysis of global reaction time and interference cost

Donnelly, Seamus; Brooks, Patricia J; Homer, Bruce D.


A contentious issue in contemporary psycholinguistics is whether bilingualism enhances executive functions. Here, we report a meta-analysis of 80 studies (253 effect sizes) comparing performance of monolinguals and bilinguals on non-verbal interference-control tasks, while examining potential moderators of effects on two dependent variables (DVs): global reaction time (RT) and interference cost. We used a multiverse approach to determine how robust conclusions were to several dataset...[Show more]
