Develop memory power, some effective techniques

  1. 1. How to Maintain a strong memory for life b a b u a p p a t @ g m a i l . c o m
  2. 2. If you are looking for ways to preserve and even enhance your grey matter as you age, there are many things you can do to improve brain health and thus your memory and mental performance.
  3. 3. According to Dementia Today, an online publication which posts scientific news and professional views on Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias from the global research community, brain deterioration begins well before old age.
  4. 4. Scientists believe that changes in plasticity at brain synapses — the junctions where neurons signal to each other — and the loss of neurons may be responsible for this decline in function
  5. 5. Interestingly, these changes also precede Alzheimer’s disease. Dementia Today also reports that in Alzheimer’s disease patients, early neuron loss and changes in synapse function have been observed in the hippocampus and neo-cortex — the very brain regions involved in language, memory, and other higher cognitive functions
  6. 6. But there are strategies to maintaining and improving brain health. Researchers have found at least one clear link between brain plasticity and healthy aging: That a rich, stimulating environment can enhance and maintain brain plasticity, even in old age and with Alzheimer’s disease patients.
  7. 7. Studies show that regular social interaction, exercise, and a healthful diet — as well as cardiovascular exercise — can increase neurogenesis, neuron communication and hippocampus-related learning.
  8. 8. These healthful habits can even decrease levels of amyloid beta deposits which are associated with Alzheimer’s disease. Research has now shown that exercise enhances cognitive function and protects against dementia
  9. 9. Brain plasticity, also called neuroplasticity, allows the neurons in the brain to compensate for injury or degeneration and adjust neural activity in response to new situations or changes in the environment of the brain
  10. 10. Neuroplasticity means that with the right stimulation, your brain can form new neural pathways, alter existing connections, and adapt to changing conditions and stimulus
  11. 11. This ability is of the utmost importance to learning and memory. You can harness the natural power of neuroplasticity to improve your memory and increase your cognitive abilities. Research suggests you may want to incorporate some of the following strategies as well
  12. 12. Healthy relationships may be the ultimate memory booster. In one recent study from the Harvard School of Public Health, for example, researchers found that people with the most active social lives had the slowest rate of memory decline. Relationships stimulate our brains and the best kind of brain exercise may be interacting with others
  13. 13. Research shows that sleep is necessary for memory consolidation, with key memory- enhancing activity occurring during the deepest stages of sleep
  14. 14. Overcome the sleepy head syndrome while studying - Maintain a comfortable yet alert posture - - Ensure sufficient light - Infuse fun learning with enough videos and animations into your reading time - Use multi mode studying.. reading, writing, listening, drawing, conversing, practicing, thinking....... - Assess the learning you achieve Share your experiences
  15. 15. Laughter is good for you and engages multiple regions across the whole brain. As psychologist Daniel Goleman notes in his book Emotional Intelligence, “laughter … seems to help people think more broadly and associate more freely
  16. 16. Your brain needs a work out, too. The best brain exercising activities break your routine and challenge you to use and develop new neuro pathways. The brain boosting activities you choose should meet the following criteria:
  17. 17. Anything that takes mental effort and expands your knowledge will work.
  18. 18. If it’s something you’re already good at, it’s not a good brain exercise. Try something that’s unfamiliar and out of your comfort zone.
  19. 19. Physical and emotional enjoyment is important in the brain’s learning process. Besides, if it’s not fun you won’t keep doing it!
  20. 20. If 9 x 9 = 72 8 x 8 = 48 7 x 7 = 28 3 x 3 = ?
  21. 21. Suppose: 11 x 11 = 4 22 x 22 = 16 33 x 33 = 36 44 x 44 = ?
  22. 22. 1 = 2 2 = 10 3 = 30 4 = 68 5 - ?
  23. 23. 2 = 3 3 = 8 4 = 15 5 = 24 6 = ?
