This is the second in a series on brain improvement. For the first entry, the overview, see the post called “How to Make Your Brain Better”.
Memory systems in human brains are the result of eons of development. These systems are driven by only a few parameters: risk, relevance, need, “sense”, connection, oddness and practice. Where risk is high it usually takes only one experience to plant a memory. We’ve all had the experience of remembering precisely – with one exposure – where we saw a poisonous snake, a dangerous-looking “thug”, or had an injury.
[In this post I’ll discuss how to use nature’s own methods to improve memory. If this topic interests you, go HERE.]
