How can you improve your brain power? Try learning a new language. Using experiments in which electroencephalography (EEG) was employed to measure the electrical activity in the brains of 22 students, Finish scientists have discovered that learning foreign languages increases our brain's elasticity and its ability to code information. It would appear that the more languages we master, the more the brain’s physiology and elasticity is stimulated and the better it becomes at reacting to and processing data that is accumulated in the course of learning.
