“Era uno de los absolutamente grandes en el campo del bilingüismo y me convirtió en el científico que soy hoy”


Albert Costa, a scientist, a father and a close friend to many, dedicated his career to understanding the cognitive basis of language and bilingualism. In his memory, the Center for Brain and Cognition has created the Albert Costa Memorial Lecture. The purpose of this conference is to honour Albert as one of the most original and influential bilingual researchers of his time and the great scientific legacy he has left behind in the field of language processing and bilingualism.


The Centre for Brain and Cogniton invites you to attend the Albert Costa Memorial lecture, which will be held at Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Ciutadella Campus (Auditorium de Ciutadella), on Friday, October 11 at 6 pm.

The lecture: "The forces that shape the organization of object knowledge in the brain", will be given by Alfonso Caramazza (Harvard University), who was a close friend, collaborator and mentor of Albert for many years. 

Light refreshments will follow the lecture.
