Learning languages modifies brain network
from Language Magazine
According to a Sino-American study published recently in the Journal of Neurolinguistics, learning a new language changes your brain network both structurally and functionally. "Learning and practicing something, for instance a second language, strengthens the brain," said Ping Li, professor of psychology, linguistics, and information sciences and technology at Pennsylvania State University. "Like physical exercise, the more you use specific areas of your brain, the more it grows and gets stronger."
