For Teenage Brains, the Importance of Continuing to Learn Deeply | Analytics | Scoop.it

Why do children learn languages more quickly than adults? When does this ability to learn rapidly change? This post looks at recent research, specifically "the interplay between your genetic inheritance and how you learn from the environment"

The research focused on how children learn and notes that in childhood "the brain is especially responsive to learning." As we grow into adolescence this "hyperlearning mode" does seem to end, and therefore learning seems to be harder.
But the research also shows that children with higher IQs tend to have a brain that stays more in the "hyperlearning mode." The last line of the post states "Even if you’re a teenager, it might not be too late to start learning Chinese, chess or the cello."
