Melissa Harrison's insight:

It's amazing how our childhood can impact our personality. It's sad to think that a hungry child is set up for failure in their future. Bad traits that are inherited from hunger can be prevented.

Bilingual children have a better “working memory” than monolingual children

Bilingual children have a better “working memory” than monolingual children | Psychology Research Melissa Harrison | Scoop.it

A study conducted at the University of Granada and the University of York in Toronto, Canada, has revealed that bilingual children develop a better working memory –which holds, processes and updates information over short periods of time– than monolingual children. The working memory plays a major role in the execution of a wide range of activities, such as mental calculation (since we have to remember numbers and operate with them) or reading comprehension (given that it requires associating the successive concepts in a text).

The objective of this study –which was published in the last issue of the Journal of Experimental Child Psychology– was examining how multilingualism influences the development of the “working memory” and investigating the association between the working memory and the cognitive superiority of bilingual people found in previous studies.
