How to increase memory and brain power?

Memory is the function of the brain that stores information, to use it later in one way or another. Skills such as reading, writing, calculating and logical thinking are impossible without memory. Without memory, even speaking, observing, understanding, thinking and planning would not be possible. With memory complaints, people experience, rightly or wrongly, that there is a deterioration of the memory; a reduction in the ability to store information and/or retrieve it later.


Our memories are an integral part of who we are, but as we age our memory declines. For many older adults, the decline becomes so serious that they’re no longer able to live independently, which is one of the biggest fearsTrusted Source adults have as they age. The good news is that scientists have been learning more about our brain’s amazing capacity to change and grow new neural connections each day, even in old age. This concept is known as neuroplasticity. Through research on neuroplasticity, scientists have discovered that our memory capacity isn’t fixed, but rather malleable like plastic.


Any time you learn a new piece of information, you’re more likely to mentally record that information if it’s repeated. Repetition reinforces the connections we create between neurons. Repeat what you hear out loud. Try using it in a sentence. Write it down and read it aloud. But the work doesn’t stop there. Research shows that simple repetition is an ineffective learning tool if used on its own. You’ll need to sit back down later and actively try to retrieve the information without looking at where you wrote it down. Testing yourself to retrieve the information is better than repeated studying. Practicing retrieval creates more long-term and meaningful learning experiences.
