Brain And Memory

Yesterday, in the class of paradigms that forms part of the program of brain empowerment that I teach, arose two extremely interesting topics: the first arose after a schoolgirl exposed about brain functions and specifically the types of memory that we have, which are briefly as follows: to) memory snapshot: one that we use in a matter of seconds. For example, when they give you a phone number and remember it for a few seconds to be able to mark it and the minute you have forgotten it. Another example would be when they ask you to read a list of fifteen objects and ask that you remember most of them. On average you will perhaps remember 7, 8 or 9. An hour later, you just remember 2 or 3.

(b) short-term memory: is the one that we use to remember something for a period of minutes or at most a few days. For example, helps us to remember where leave parked the vehicle, did the weekend just past or that heat the night before a test. (c) medium-term memory: is the one that we use to remind us by facts from one week to one year. An example would be that information that we need to pass a course or to carry out a project at work and that passed that year, already do not remember it. (d) long-term memory: is what we use to recall by a year and even life. Now, the question that arose in the classroom was: what makes the brain decides that something is immediate, short, medium or long term? There is much to say about memory no doubt. In fact, within the program of brain empowerment that I teach is a unit dedicated to the principles of the Super memory and simple, practical exercises and that they enhance memory, that contrary to what many believe, isn’t that some have bad memory, but we have not trained him properly.
