Learning another language may help the aging brain
from HealthDay News via CBS News
Speaking two or more languages helps protect your brain as you age, even if you learn new languages as an adult, new research suggests. The study included 835 people born in Scotland in 1936 whose first language was English. They were given mental skills tests at age 11 and again in their early 70s. Of the participants, 262 were able to speak at least two languages, with 195 of them learning a second language before age 18, and the rest after that age.
