Some People May Be Pre-Wired to Be Bilingual
Science & Tech  (tags: study, research, brain, bilingual, mother tongue, health, discovery, humans, science, society, world )

- 294 days ago -
Some people's brains seem pre-wired to acquire a second language, new research suggests. But anyone who tries to move beyond their mother tongue will likely gain a brain boost, the small study finds.
Science & Tech  (tags: languages, brain, sounds, discovery, humans, research, science, society, study )

- 301 days ago -
The infant brain forms representations of language sounds, but we wanted to see whether the brain maintains these representations later in life even if the person is no longer exposed to the language,
