Subject: Bilingualism Beneficial to the Brains of Elderly


New Scientist Magazine (in Australia, vol 182 issue 2452 - 19 June
2004, page 17) has a short news article on a study which revealed
benefits of bilingualism for the brains of elderly people.

This can be found at (I believe subscription to the magazine is
required):

The article reports on a study published by Ellen Biaslystok and
colleagues in "Pshychology and Aging", volume 19, p 290.
