Do people with a genetic vulnerability to alcohol dependence need to drink more to feel like they’ve consumed the same amount of alcohol as those without the gene? Dana grantee Graeme Mason aims to answer this question using Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy to measure alcohol-induced changes in the concentration of certain neurotransmitters.. The Cognitive Benefits of Being Bilingual.. by Viorica Marian, PhD and Anthony Shook.. Today, more of the world's population is bilingual or multilingual than monolingual.. In addition to facilitating cross-cultural communication, this trend also positively affects cognitive abilities.. Researchers have shown that the bilingual brain can have better attention and task-switching capacities than the monolingual brain, thanks to its developed ability to inhibit one language while using another.. In addition, bilingualism has positive effects at both ends of the age spectrum: Bilingual children as young as seven months can better adjust to environmental changes, while bilingual seniors can experience less cognitive decline..
