    Unfamiliarity Begets Improved Memory

    It’s common knowledge that the brain needs to be exercised regularly with mental challenges to keep it sharp in today’s ever-changing and increasingly challenging environment. We’ve been taught from an early age to keep challenging our brain with crossword puzzles, strategic games, and the hours of studying we had to undergo come exam week. A new study, however, elaborates on how learning a new, unfamiliar skill may produce a notable boost in memory. The study, conducted by the University of Texas just last year, outlined an experiment that involved over 200 people, aged between 60 and 90, who were divided into 3…

    Remembering Everything

    Have you ever been in a rush to leave your apartment and then not remember where you left your keys? In frustration you tediously scour every corner of your room, in every place you thought you might have left it? I bet we all get that sometimes. “If I could just remember where I left those darn keys!” If only you could remember. Why are we blessed with memory when memory seems to be so unreliable at times?

    What is Memory?

    What is a memory really? Is it like a video in your head? A video that you play back as many times as you’d like? No, apparently not. According to a new study in the Journal of Neuroscience, memory is more like a continuous video editing process. Pinpointed at the hippocampus where all this editing occurs, the researchers from North-western University say that even your vague recollections of your love at first sight, or your 12th birthday, or your first PlayStation might all just be tricks of memory. When you think back on a memory, you might not be remembering what you…

How a person reacts to a certain nootropic can be different, depending on that person’s gender, age, weight and metabolism, genetics,…
