Importantly, GM density in several cortical and subcortical areas has been shown to be related to performance in L2 tasks. Here, we show that bilingualism can lead to increased GM volume in the cerebellum, a structure that has been related to the processing of grammatical rules. Additionally, the cerebellar GM volume of highly proficient L2 speakers is correlated to their performance in a task tapping on grammatical processing in an L2, demonstrating the importance of the cerebellum for the establishment and use of grammatical rules in an L2.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dc:contributor>Marinis, Theodoros</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Marinis, Theodoros</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Pliatsikas, Christos</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
