The brain is the most complex in structure and it is extremely strong. Due to this, sometimes receptors and senders don’t act appropriately and sometimes they respond to stimulus very quickly. When a brain scan is done, some results are highly disturbing and much observable. New and first-time learners of the Japanese language did some measurements and analyzed how brain activity changes after just a few months of studying and working on a new language. Many researchers worked on this study and participated actively by giving their ideas and Professor Kuniyoshi L. Sakai, a neuroscientist at the University of Tokyo is the first author of this research and it was recently published in frontiers in Behavioral neuroscience. The research was done with the help of a few participants and around fifteen volunteers and finally completed introductory Japanese classes through which it can get a better understanding of the topic. All volunteers were native speakers of European languages who also had prior knowledge of English and no prior knowledge about the Japanese language.

 Improvements in the reading and listening skills of those students showed some variations as understanding the full context of any new language is a tedious task. The result of the study shows that acquiring a new language initially boosts brain activity and movements and afterward it is then reduced as language skills improve. Initially, you will be able to quantitatively measure improvements in language skills by tracking brain activations.
