Native Language Influences Brain Wiring, New Study Claims

Posted by in category: neuroscience

Scientists have found evidence using neuroimaging that the native language people speak may affect the way that their brains are wired.

Researchers from Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences in Leipzig analyzed and compared the brain scans of native Arabic and German speakers. The languages were selected for the reason that they are significantly different.

Their results indicate the native language of an individual can influence the connectivity between areas of their brains.
