According to Alex Schelgel, a brain researcher and author of a new paper in the Aug. 2012 issue of Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience, the adult brain can learn new things just like younger brains. Schelgel studied the brains of 27 Dartmouth students while they took a Chinese language course. He found actual changes in the structure of their brains.
