Outside the Lines – Unleashing the Power of the Bilingual Brain

Rola Mahmoud

The Alliance Française of Kansas City joins the worldwide event Night of Ideas with a fascinating presentation, “Unleashing the Power of the Bilingual Brain,” in partnership with the UMKC Department of World Languages and Cultures.

Dr. Rola Mahmoud, neurologist, will explore the powerful impact that learning new languages has on the brain and even on our health and happiness. Learning new languages enhances brain function thanks to the phenomenon of neuroplasticity; it can promote healthy aging and even slow the onset of dementia!

Join us for a peek into the field of neurosciences and how learning another language will leverage your brain power!
