Moderate Intensity Exercise Can Boost Memory Performance

Researchers have found that moderate intensity exercise such as brisk walking, water aerobics or cycling can have the most beneficial effect on memory performance. These findings, published in the journal Neurobiology of Learning and Memory, suggest that it is not necessary for people to carry out highly strenuous exercise to achieve observable improvements in long-term […]

Exercise helps boost heart failure patients' memory

London: Heart patients who exercise regularly and have better fitness are likely to have less cognitive impairment, says a study. Fitter patients have better memory, it adds. “The message for the patients with heart failure is to do exercises,” said study author Ercole Vellone, Professor at University of Rome Tor Vergata, Italy. The study analysed […]

Taking short breaks may help learn new skills better, say researchers

New York: If you are in a process of learning new skills, then taking short breaks in between may help you grasp it better, say researchers. The study, published in the journal Current Biology, suggests our brains probably take short rest periods to strengthen memories. “Everyone thinks you need to ‘practice, practice and practice’ when […]

How our diet can impact memory

New York: Although you might be familiar with the statement, “you are what you eat”, the food you consume could also impact your memory, suggests a new study. A team of researchers discovered that cholecystokinin (CCK), a satiety hormone which is highly expressed in memory formation, could, at higher levels, decrease a person’s likelihood of developing […]

Can 'acting' help improve memory?

London: Have you ever felt annoyed with yourself, maybe for forgetting to do an important task, or for leaving the house keys behind? If so, acting out things you are supposed to remember or pretending that you are actually doing it, can help you recall, suggests a research. The findings showed that alternative enactment techniques, […]

Know the brain mechanism behind depression

London: People suffer from major depressive disorders due to alterations in the activity and connectivity of brain systems underlying reward and memory, says a new research. The findings, published in the journal Biological Psychiatry: Cognitive Neuroscience and Neuroimaging, provide clues as to which regions of the brain could be at the root of symptoms, such […]

Stress hormone enhances memory retrieval

London: The stress hormone cortisol strengthens memories of scary experiences in life, researchers report. If a person remembering a terrifying event has a high stress hormone level, the memory of that specific event will be strongly reconsolidated after each retrieval. “The results may explain why certain undesirable memories don’t fade, for example in anxiety and […]

Scientists discover speedometer in brain

London: Researchers have discovered how the brain keeps pace with your speed while driving or finding your destination. “The faster we move, the less time the brain has to take in environmental cues and to associate them with a location on our memorised spatial map. Our perception, therefore, has to keep pace with the speed […]

Why women are better at remembering tasks-to-do

London: Now is the time to finally listen to your wife as women are better than men at remembering things to do, a new study finds. The study involved putting 100 men and women through a battery of memory tests. These judged prospective memory; that is remembering to carry out plans. The volunteers, who were […]

Challenging work tasks sharpen brain

London: If your job requires more speaking, developing strategies, conflict resolution and managerial tasks, you may be better protected against memory and thinking decline in old age than your co-workers, says a study. “Our study is important because it suggests that the type of work you do throughout your career may have even more significance […]
