The Backwards Brain Bicycle

The “backwards brain bicycle” is an entertaining video. Destin, of YouTube channel Smarter Every Day demonstrates that knowledge does not equal understanding.  The unique bike turns right when you turn left, left when you turn right. Destin son learns to ride the bicycle much quicker than he does, validating for Destin that children have more neural plasticity. Destin remarks that this may be why the greatest time to learn a language is as a child!
