An international group of neuroscientists, having conducted extensive research, made a unique discovery with regard to the parameters of the human brain. It turned out, even the short immersion in the language environment in early childhood has a great influence on the human perception 2 languages at a later date.
Without going into lengthy arguments, the brains of people on this planet who remembers their mother tongue.
In an article published in the journal Nature Communications, describes the experiences, which involved 3 groups of children aged 10 to 17 years. The subjects of group 1 were born and grew up in Francophone families. Children from 2 groups were born in China, although up to 3 years moved into French-speaking families and have stopped speaking their native language. The guys from the third category to have free use of the two languages.
During the study, researchers invited all 3 groups to perform a task that required me to identify the French pseudoloma. For example, such as vapagne and chansette. At this time neuroscientists using multifunctional magnetic resonance imaging studied the brain response of subjects to the perception of native and French words borrowed in the language.
As to us researchers, children from all groups equally did a swell job with a simple job, however the activity of the brain in the groups was different. In the process of performing tasks in children from group 1 were active in the left inferior frontal gyrus and anterior part of the Insula. Tested from 2 other groups showed activity in the right middle frontal gyrus, left middle frontal cortex and bilateral superior temporal gyrus.
Taking into account the opinion of scientific workers, from this we can conclude that Chinese children, forgetting their native language in early childhood and speak only French, take language as if they were talking in 2 languages. As a result, the experts came to the conclusion that throughout life the native language remains for the inhabitant of our planet closest. With all this the location and facilities of the personality does not matter.
