But in those studies, bilingual people were largely immigrants, raising questions about whether they differed in other ways from the general population, says Brian Gold, a neuroscientist at the University of Kentucky, Lexington. The new study is more convincing, he says, "because it is studying bilingual people raised in the same country and culture."

The basic imaging research shown here was supported in part by a grant, awarded to Brian Gold of the University of Kentucky (UK) College of Medicine, from the National Science Foundation (BCS 08-14302) that was related to understanding how white matter integrity changes may precede cognitive declines in aging.

Speaking More Than One Language Could Prevent Alzheimer's, 15 Oct 2013 [cached]
The latest evidence from the bilingualism-is-good-for-you crew comes from Brian Gold, a neuroscientist at the University of Kentucky College of Medicine in Lexington. To test the idea, he had older people who grew up bilingual do an attention-switching task, a skill that typically fades with age. Earlier research has found that people bilingual since childhood are better at the high-order thinking called executive function as they age.
Gold found that his bilingual seniors were better at the task, which had them quickly sorting colors and shapes, than their monolingual peers. He then added an extra dimension by sticking the people's heads in scanners to see what was happening inside their brains.
Gold seldom speaks French now, though he has learned Spanish to talk with his Mexican-born wife and her relatives. His next task is to see if learning a second language in adulthood would give some protective benefit to those of us who missed the chance to be bilingual as children. That, he says, "would be more useful to people."

Brian T. Gold, PhD, University of Kentucky
The third speaker of the afternoon was Brian T. Gold, PhD, an Associate Professor in the Department of Anatomy and Neurobiology at the University of Kentucky (UK) College of Medicine. Dr. Gold is the Director of the Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory at UK. His research focuses on characterizing cognitive and brain changes associated with normal aging, early Alzheimer's disease (AD), and preclinical AD. In addition, Dr. Gold is investigating how certain lifestyle variables (e.g. exercise, education) may slow cognitive decline and brain aging. A multimodal imaging approach is employed, making use of functional magnetic resonance imaging and structural imaging methods such as volumetric assessment and diffusion tensor imaging. The title of Dr. Gold's presentation was White matter microstructural Alterations: Relation to Other Markers of Preclinical Alzheimer's Disease.
The average lifespan following diagnosis of AD is 8 years. We need better biomarkers. Mild AD is too late for intervention therapies. Dr. Gold showed pictures on diffusion tensor imaging (DTI). Different diffusion patterns indicative of different types of damage in the brain. Dr. Gold uses DTI to study connections between different areas of the brain, correlate with clinical data. Dr. Gold's presentation is complex; lots of acronyms, a number of regional brain areas.

The research, led by Brian Gold, associate professor of anatomy and neurobiology, University of Kentucky College of Medicine, identified changes in the brains of normal seniors at high risk for Alzheimer's disease that could prove important for early detection of the disease.
The research focused on the brain's white matter, which forms the majority of deep parts of the brain and consists primarily of myelinated nerve cell processes, or axons.
These myelinated axons serve to connect the brain's gray matter regions, which contain nerve cell bodies.
"The brain's white matter can be thought of as a set of telephone wires which enable communication between gray matter 'thinking regions'," Gold said.
