The daily use of two languages may lead to conflict-specific brain adaptations in bilinguals. To evaluate the non-verbal conflict processing in bilingual children we compared simultaneous and sequential bilingual to monolingual 8-11 year old children in an fMRI study using a colour-Simon(stimulus-response) and a numerical Stroop (stimulus-stimulus conflict) paradigm. This provides a direct comparison of the performance on two kinds of conflict tasks.
