How the brain processes German and Arabic

A study conducted by scientists from the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences in Leipzig found that native speakers of Arabic and German have different brain connections when processing language.

These differences in brain connections are shaped by the structure and demands of each language. [summary] [comments]
