Amazing Facts About Human Brain And Memory
What is memory?
Memory is the term for information that is stored in your brain and can be retrieved or recalled at any time. Different information is sorted into different areas of the brain, putting like with like. Memory occurs when you cross-reference that information and pull it together to make a complete picture.
People have two types of memory: long-term memory and short-term memory. Short-term memory involves recently learned information you can access at the time you need it, for example, material studied for an exam. Long-term memory stores information you use almost every day or things from the past that are important to you.
Researchers know that some information is more readily absorbed than other information. For example, smells, faces and other things that you see regularly are absorbed almost effortlessly, whereas more complex, less frequently seen images are often harder to retrieve.
How does normal memory work?
Through the use of new technology, scientists are better able to study how the brain works by using specialized scanning equipment. The brain has many different areas that specialize in different types of information. From this, researchers now know that certain attributes of a memory are grouped with other similar recollections; for example, a particular smell may be grouped with other scent recollections.
One memory does not occupy a single slot, but rather it is divided into its various parts. When you retrieve this information, when you remember and recall, your brain cross-references the many attributes of the memory, pulling information together in much the way a search engine on the Web does.
Are some people born with better memories than others are?
There are many factors that contribute to the ability to remember (memory function). Genetics accounts for about half of your mental ability and memory function. It is a simple fact that some people are better at remembering than are others.
How does memory change with age?
Changes in memory function and how they relate to aging is a very active field of research. As your body ages, your mental ability and capacity to remember begin a slow, steady decline. The effects of this become more apparent after age 50, when people begin to experience more incidents of memory lapse. The older you are, the more difficulty you have with short-term memory and mental organization.
As a general rule, as you age, your brain just isn't able to reorganize and search the way it used to. For example, multitasking (trying to do several things at once) adversely affects the short-term memory of older people. As you grow older, the speed at which you learn new information declines. And how you learn information plays a crucial role in memory function and recall. Promising research suggests that if an older person learns information in the right way, he or she is just as likely to remember it as is someone younger.
What does forgetfulness indicate?
Everyone has had the experience of misplacing their keys or forgetting what they were about to say. Such lapses in memory are common at any age and are not something you need to worry about.
On the other hand, extreme memory loss is never a normal part of growing older. Severe impairment may be a symptom of an underlying disorder or condition such as depression, stress or sleep deprivation. Treating the condition often changes the situation, and the memory issues generally improve or resolve.
Can memory be improved?
There are several things you can do to improve your memory. One is to develop personal organizational techniques, such as making checklists and having a daily planner. Another thing to do is find ways to better manage your stress. By doing this, you will increase your capacity to recall. Another way to help you remember is to separate information into different sections — smaller bits of information are easier to recall than one long segment. Reinforce information by writing it down. All of these things can help improve your ability to remember.
Researchers have proved that using mnemonic techniques instead of schedulers and planners will make have a good impact on your brain and memory power. Using schedulers and planners makes it easy to remember things but, they weaken your memory. If you use mnemonic techniques, they will make your memory stronger day by day. It is just like using stairs instead of elevator in order to keep your heart healthy.

Will these techniques not make my speed slow?
Actually not, rather it will improve the speed by 5 to 10 ten times. Its just a matter of practice. Just think of the time when you were learning alphabets. It was very slow and sluggish to write even a single word but today you write almost automatically without even thinking of the letters.
If the user has slow speed of Visualization?
Actually there is nothing like slow speed of visualization or a fast speed of visualization. It’s all about how we use the power of visualization or imagination, for example, human-beings keep on dreaming day and night, in-fact we all are able to imagine, but we keep on imagining in a useless way. For increasing memory power the only thing matter is how to use the sense of imagination or visualization purposely, for example how to direct the imagination to learn study matter without will, This will come with constant practice and techniques, which will assist you in controlling the power of imagination as well as association.
How much time will it take for learning all these techniques?
Learning the skill of association is like learning any new skill. Like driving a car or riding a cycle initially we do it in a slow manner, but with little bit of practice we can have a complete command on it. This situation is just like driving a car. While driving we may indulge in various activities like listening to music or interact with people, or talk on our mobile simultaneously… Similarly with some practice on new techniques, we will find that we are able to associate the things without much effort.
Is it possible to learn the entire curriculum study matter with these techniques?
It is like a collection of 5 or 10 books. How will you place them? May be you will pack them in a bag. But if you are having books about 50, 60 or 100 in number then you will create a rack. You will keep the books in the rack subject wise or author wise. But If I say you that you have to take care of 50,000 books. In that case you will have to create a library or you will create a system to place the books alphabetically or subject wise or author wise, and whenever you need a particular book, you will find the book conveniently... In the same manner during learning of these techniques, we will create a rack system like a library and then you will find that even if the material is in hundred, thousand or in lakh in number, we are able to learn it very fast and quick. And whenever will require a particular information from memory system we will be able to recall it easily without any confusion. But it will happen only when we will learn the advanced techniques.
Are these techniques ancient techniques?
Of course yes, these are ancient methods and, knowingly unknowingly; we are using these techniques every day. Mostly we learn the things by law of association and law of imagination in our life also. Here we are learning it in an established manner, so that to get the full use of it. And also if we see the history of memorizing all the great memorizers or if we you read the history of great memorizer, like biography or autobiography you will come to know that they were great memorizers, because they had been using these techniques. Although they all were born as a normal child like us but since childhood they were able to use these techniques and as a result of that they have grown as a well known memorizer of the world or they became famous as great memorizers. Most of them known for their outstanding memory to an extent that if you ask them what had happened 25,000 yrs back on that particular day. They will just think for a while before asking the question by you and moment you give the time they will not only give the complete description of what was happening on that particular time or day but will also be able to give the description of color of clothes of the people, who were there at that particular time, that was the kind of memory they were having, But upon investigation, scientists could find that although they were born with a very normal memory but from the very beginning of their life they were able to use these laws to that extent that now they are known to the world as the greatest memorize r. So these examples will inspire you to implement these techniques in your study matter.
Is these techniques are applicable in learning our study material given in schools?
Our primary goal is to use these techniques in our studies only whether it is long theories, formulas, vocabulary or geographical maps or scientific terms or something else similar like this, but before we jump into learning long theory, very complicated map we must understand the basics of memory without understanding the basics of memory we will not be able to learn those thing. As before knowing how to drive a car on a highway, we must know how to drive a car, when there is no traffic on the road; before we know how to drive a car we must know what the different parts of the car are and their function so jumping directly to the advanced level it may be dangerous. So we are going step by step but ultimate goal is that in these 4 days you have to apply, these techniques in our study so that we are able to save time and improve our speed of memorizing as well as recollection.
How can I learn long theories?
The most important thing we must all know and remember what was our first language when we learn t our mother tongue. How we learn t our mother tongue. Let’s say you want to learn German, through English, or if I say you want to learn French through Hindi or English. That is because we already have a base of one, two or three languages with the help of these languages, we can learn many more languages, but in childhood you were not knowing even a single language how we learn t our first language that may be our mother tongue, we learn t our first language through the pictures language. The child learn this particular thing is called apple by looking at it and then hearing the sound of it so our brain’s original language is picture language and that is the basics language through which we could learn the first language so we learn these techniques and through these techniques we will be able to convert everything in a particular picture and that to in a fraction of second, and finally you find that very long theories can be converted into a small picture and by thinking that picture we can learn the entire theory. So for that you have been little bit patient and really go through some exercise to come across that particular stage.
How can I learn Number and digits?
It can be memorized by using ‘Phonetic Method’, which is the part of memory techniques.
How will I manage the entire data?
Of course, because not in that case you must have different system and this is the basics, as I gave you example of library. For library we must have racks, for library we must have a particular system. Similarly here we will device the system or we will device a mental track or we will device a mental library where we will keep all information in such a manner in spite of the fact that thousands of pages we will be able to recollect each and every thing detail and perfectly.
How much time is needed on daily basis to be perfect in memorization?
On an average you should practice 10 to 15 min every day, but what to do and when to do; I will tell you at right time.
How can I learn my vast syllabus with these techniques?
Since your syllabus is very vast that’s why these techniques are even more required and even more useful. If you would have few pages in your syllabus you would have learn t them in anyway. But since syllabus is very vast, and you spend long time in learning but still you are not able to learn, That’s why you are here and that’s why workshop is here. The workshop is meaningful only when the syllabus is huge and using these techniques you will find that ultimately you will able to save a lot of time. To really save time you have to spend 4 days with complete sincerity and dedication. Just like sharpening the saw it may take little time to sharpen the saw but once you sharpen it the task becomes easier.
How these techniques are helpful in permanent learning process?
Whatever we imagine we remember that 20 times h3er that, what we just hear .So imagination (visual) senses are more powerful than our audio senses. Conventionally we memorize the things by hearing, listening, speaking, but here instead of using only the hearing sense we are using visual memory also, so here the chances of forgetting is very less.
What is the solution, if anybody has less concentration power?
Concentration is an outcome, when we are in our imagination and when we are able to collect our-self in imagination with subject that itself is known as concentration. In past few examples, if you are able to memorize and recall the things perfectly itself that means that you are able to concentrate in a perfect way. So using these techniques will allow you to concentrate or will force you to concentrate automatically it will happen. So there is no need to worry about it.
