How bilingual brains think outside the boxe(s)
from The Huffington Post
A recent study compared memory in bilingual and monolingual children. As the Journal of Experimental Child Psychology reports, a team led by Julia Morales Castillo of the University of Granada gathered two sets of children; one monolingual group and one bilingual group; and put the kids through a series of simple tests designed to examine the storage capacity of their working memory — the form of memory that stores items, like numbers in a column or cards on a table, in our immediate sense of the present moment.
