let's go to the neuroscience: five specific tricks to improve memory and recall things better.
Researchers from the University of Roehampton in London divided their subjects into three groups.
In Group 1, participants were asked to complete their task while walking forward.
In Group 2, participants completed the same tasks while walking backward.
In Group 3, participants acted as a control group, doing the same tasks but standing still.
Results-The walking backward group (Group 2) recalled the task they did.
laboratory study out of Michigan State University determined that working in an environment with dim lighting can "change the brain's structure and hurt one's ability to remember and learn."
In the end, the rats in the dim light "lost about 30 percent of capacity in the hippocampus, a critical brain region for learning and memory, and performed poorly on a spatial task they had trained on previously," according to the study.
study out of King's College London. Researchers here wanted to determine if intermittent fasting might spur hippocampal neurogenesis and improve the memory performance of lab mice.
results-The study found that the intermittent fasting group had "improved long-term memory retention compared to the other groups."
Neuroscientists at Trinity College in Dublin surmised recently in the journal Nature Reviews Neuroscience that forgetfulness has a lot more to do with inability to access memories, as opposed to whether the memories were still physically stored in the brain.
These researchers say it might be a net positive
best advice here might simply be not to worry about normal memory loss.
Instead, accept it as a normal, healthy part of brain function--but also shore up your important memories with checklists, calendars, and other tools.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
