Can someone said me if the paraphrase below is ok? All comments and corrections are appreciate :)

ORIGINAL SOURCE
The cognitive and neurological benefits of bilingualism extend from early childhood to old age as the brain more efficiently processes information and staves off cognitive decline. What’s more, the attention and aging benefits discussed above aren’t exclusive to people who were raised bilingual; they are also seen in people who learn a second language later in life.25, 28 The enriched cognitive control that comes along with bilingual experience represents just one of the advantages that bilingual people enjoy. Despite certain linguistic limitations that have been observed in bilinguals (e.g., increased naming difficulty7), bilingualism has been associated with improved metalinguistic awareness (the ability to recognize language as a system that can be manipulated and explored), as well as with better memory, visual-spatial skills, and even creativity.29 Furthermore, beyond these cognitive and neurological advantages, there are also valuable social benefits that come from being bilingual, among them the ability to explore a culture through its native tongue or talk to someone with whom you might otherwise never be able to communicate.
Viorica Marian and Anthony Shook, Cerebrum, 2012

PARAPHRASE :
In their article published online on “Cerebrum” in 2012, Viorica Marian and Anthony Shook prove that bilingualism has positive effects at both ends of the age spectrum as a bilingual brain benefits of cognitive and neurological advantages. The experience as bilingual people lead not solely to an enriched cognitive control, but they also process information better and ward off cognitive decline. These cited tasks, like better attention, are also characteristic of people who learnd a further language later in life. Researchers Marian and Shook state that on the one hand, bilingual people benefit of long-term memories, creativity and visual-spatial skills ; they are aware of the effectiveness of language, as a system you can use, control and explore. On the other hand, they affirm that bilinguals can face issues related to some linguistic aspects, a prime example is difficulties in naming. In addition,to be able to speak two different languages as mother tongue can create social advantages, for instance the possibility to find out a new culture starting from its language and communicate with native people without any difficulties.

Perhaps:

Would you tell me why I should use "tell" and not "say" there?

This one has been addressed before more than once. If you use the search feature you will find threads where the question has been asked and answered.

Are they saying that the brains of bilingual people more efficiently process information than the brains of those who are not bilingual?

By attention benefits do they mean the ability to focus?
