7 THINGS
YOU DIDN’T KNOW
ABOUT IMPROVING
YOUR MEMORY
1. Forgetting helps you learn!
When studying, think about how this information will
be useful to you in the future.
We’ve evolved to forget
anything that’s not
immediately relevant to
our survival.
So
2. Use it or lose it!
Unused brain
cells die.
So
Practise!
Well-used
brain cells
develop
stronger
connections
and function
more quickly.
3. Memory is wobbly!
Recalling information makes it unstable
So
If you’re not sure you’ve remembered everything,
check your revision notes.
4. Memory is unreliable!
Students often underestimate how much effort it
takes for a memory to stick.
So
Test your knowledge immediately after you’ve
learned it, and also the next day.
5. The harder it is to remember,
the stronger the memory
Difficult to recall? The process of digging it out will
make the memory stronger.
So
Don’t give up. Make your brain really think.
6. Location, location, location!
The context, circumstances & surroundings
of where you learn, is all encoded in your
brain, along with the information itself.
So
Imagine being back in that same space.
7. Reloading!
Every time you return to a memory, it becomes
stronger
So
Instead of concentrating on one subject only, juggle
between different topics.
