brain power. Last October, researchers at Dartmouth College in Hanover,
New Hampshire, presented the results of a study that used an optical
imaging technology called near infrared spectrology to compare the
brain activity of bilinguals and monolinguals. These showed similar
brain activity for both categories when speaking one language, but an
increase in activity in both the right and left hemispheres in
bilinguals when simultaneously processing each of the two languages.
