QuickHit: For Your Memory

Rest is best
December 10, 2012

Once you go to the trouble of learning something, you definitely want to remember it. But what’s the best way to do that? University of Edinburgh researchers found a helpful tactic: They told study participants two stories. After one, they let participants rest (but not sleep) with their eyes closed for 10 minutes. After the other story, researchers gave participants a game to play. A week later, participants had better recollection of the story they heard followed by rest. So give yourself a break… for rest… and you’ll do your next presentation without needing notes.
