Mental keys to memory and education.
What happens in the brain when we remember? What kinds of memories do we have, and what do they do? What and how do we remember? Can we erase undesirable memories? Is it important to sleep to learn? How can we support learning and memory? What is the best time of the day for learning? How can we counteract age-related mental deterioration?
Though its true that all of us have our own individual rhythms, it’s no less true that when we do things right, the differences between people are considerably reduced. Adapting to the way the brain functions in general and for each person in particular is essential for improving memory and intelligence.
This book is written for all those interested in knowing how the brain manages to remember, store, and retain knowledge––in understanding how memories are reinforced, weakened, or changed, or how we remember and why we forget. A study of the scientific keys to establishing the best procedures for teaching and learning efficiently.
