It has often been considered that humans learn language using brain components that are specifically assigned for this purpose. As per the latest research, evidence strongly suggests that language is in fact learned in brain systems that does multiple tasks.
The new theory of learning disagrees with the long-standing theory that language depends on innately-specified language modules found only in humans. These brain systems are also found in animals. These brain systems have undergone many changes to support language, as they play an important role in the critical human learning ability.The study is important for understanding the biology and evolution of language and how it is learned. It is also being considered important for knowing how language learning can be improved. It improves the learning ability of people who are learning a foreign language. It is also found very useful for improving the ability of the people with language disorders like autism, dyslexia, or aphasia. Grammar abilities in children and in adults, which allow them to combine words into sentences according to the rules of a language, showed a different pattern. The result suggests that there is a strong and reliable link between language and the brain systems. Researchers don’t know much about which genes relates to language; however numerous genes playing particular roles in the two brain systems have been identified. It is expected that the findings will help in language learning all.
