Memory Training

Here we will provide some tests and information about training your memory. We believe that with exercise and knowledge you can enhance your memory or at least use it intelligently. It's suggested that a memory workout has an effect on the brain similar to the effect of a physical excercise on the body. The harder you make it work the stronger it gets. Just like muscles becoming stronger by creating new fibers due to heavy lifting, the brain creates new synapses and cells to adapt to the new activity (memory training). Below is a game which will stimulate your memory and provide some fun as well.

Why do I have a bad memory?

In many instances it's not that you have a bad memory. The problem is that many of us do not store information properly. Imagine you have a filing cabinet. If you do not categorize your files proplerly, you will have a hard time finding the file you need later on. The same goes with our memory, if we do not store a certain information the right way (name, word, phone number ...) by using the right techniques such as visualizing it or by using different mnemonic tips, it will be hard for us to retrieve (remember) that information later.
