Language (native L1 vs. foreign L2) can influence people’s decision-making. We employed event-related potential (ERP) to further investigate the effect of language, emotion and cognitive load on decision-making. In a cross-task study, Chinese-English bilinguals first judged whether a word was a correct word or a pseudoword, and then decided whether to take a risky decision in a Gambling game.
