“Learning a second language ‘boosts’ brain-power, scientists believe.
They found learning other languages altered grey matter – the area of the brain which processes information – in the same way exercise builds muscles.”

This is something so simple and yet so revelatory. I believe it must be a similar thing which leads to creative artists branching into different genres.
