Learning World: Stories From Around the World -- Brainwaves
At the Teachers College of Columbia University in New York, scientists study the electrical activity of the brain in order to understand how people learn to read, to problem solve and to learn new languages. Why is it harder for non-native speakers to acquire a new language? What happens with the brain when you learn and how do learning disorders affect your brain activity?
