Over the years you get less of the correct name. You start to confuse memories often. According to researchers, the problem is here mostly in working memory. That's the memory that you remember for a moment a brief telephone. The memory usage, when you dig into your permanent memory, the way not to lose. The memory can be quite happy to improve the training .

Practice makes perfect
Our visual memory is getting better.That we still better is not surprising.What you practice is better, so are the brains. The visual society, the more we think in pictures and images to remember. The researchers from University College London, this discovery did make a comparison with the IQ test .Then also ranks each generation better than the last. The IQ test is regularly made more difficult, because otherwise the scores would be higher still. Memory tests should also be adjusted, the researchers found.
Older brains superior
If you're young, you can easily remember names. If you're older, you remember better what clothes at a party the guests wear.Young people remember better what they want to remember - they use their explicit memory. Older people use their implicit memory better - they remember the big picture and pick up the hidden facts: that the hostess and host the same shoes, for example.

Researchers at the University of Toronto in 2011 showed a group of youngsters (average 19 years) and elderly (mean 69 years) a word test. They were asked mainly on the color of the letters to watch. The exercise that followed they had words to finish. The elders did so agile, because their brains quickly that they had in mind the words of the first exercise could use. The researchers believe that older people remember better what they see , hear and smell.

Playing with information

The more influence you have on what you learn, the better you remember. At the University of Illinois in 2010, subjects were a computer mouse in hand and viewed on a computer screen using various objects one by one along the statue moved. Half the group was the object with the mouse back and forth, the other half had no influence on the movement. The first group of objects and their order could later recall better than the second.During the experiment, their memory centers are also active.The brains beat actively collected information better. Learn something when you do the easiest to play with the information.

Second language helps

People who speak two languages, words are easier to occur in both languages. For someone who speaks English and Dutch, for example, is that the words 'movie', 'experiment' and 'computer'. Discovered that psychologists from the University of Ghent. A second language is apparently active when you speak your native language and helps to find the right word.

As changeable as the weather

When we remember less sunshine. That researchers at the University of New South Wales in Australia when she random customers in a newspaper kiosk declined a test. On the counter stood ten objects including a piggy bank and a toy. Once again outside the kiosk, the customer asked to name the items on display.
On rainy days the score was three times higher on sunny days.What the subjects remembered was more reliable, they had less 'false' memories of objects that were not on the counter.Customers were no longer in bad weather in the kiosk, so it was not. The researchers suspected that the memory associated with the mood. Rain is in grumpy and that makes the brains sharper.

Objective view of life

We naturally have a keen memory for negative experiences. The image that we preserve the past, is therefore often negatively stained. But older people remember positive experiences as well as negative, researchers at the University of Alberta. They showed subjects pictures judge. Gave the pictures a positive or a negative feeling?
Three minutes later, they were unexpectedly asked which pictures they remembered. The young participants mentioned the negative pictures, while the elderly were not selective. This is because the memory in the elderly no longer so strongly connected to emotional centers. Their memory will only act when the first emotional reaction is over, making them more objective reminder.

Relaxed Recovery

The substance resveratrol in red wine protects against stress memory. The substance activates a gene (SIRT1) which researchers from the University of Toronto last year found that the memory cells but also helps the heart recover after a high dose of stress . The researchers now want to watch or people with memory problems can be treated by the SIRT1 gene activation. A glass of red wine, it can also contribute. The alcohol in the wine has a positive effect. The implicit memory is a bit better under the influence of alcohol. But do not overdo it, because the alcohol interferes with it the explicit memory.
