Sign language is three-dimensional 3D. This might seem obvious since signers use the space in front of them to communicate, but there are advantages to 3D languages. An event like a car crash can be shown concisely, with the hands showing where the cars came from and where they impacted. Communicating with a signed language uses the same area of the brain as spoken language.
The parts of the brain that are activated when speaking are near the areas used for hearing sounds and using the vocal chords. It makes sense that the areas used for sight would be active when signing, right? But brain scans comparing Deaf and hearing people show that the same areas are activated when communicating, whether using sign language or spoken language.
