Wanted: Executive Control System
Bilingual people use their brains' executive control system more than others. I would normally say this is true but the article says: "There’s a system in your brain, the executive control system. It’s a general manager. Its job is to keep you focused on what is relevant, while ignoring distractions. It’s what makes it possible for you to hold two different things in your mind at one time and switch between them." I can barely hold unto one thought. I am going with this myth is BUSTED.
