Book excerpt: A neuroscientist provides over 200 tips, grounded in research, to help you retain information. Billions of dollars are spent each year on herbs, vitamins, and drugs that can supposedly help you build a better memory or preserve the skills you have. With over 200 well-researched tips and 300 scholarly references, Memory Power 101 is an effective and affordable way for students to get better grades, professionals to build confidence, and seniors to take control of their brain health. Dr. Klemm explains the different kinds of memories and how they are stored and accessed in everyday situations. He offers advice on learning how to focus and pay attention so that key pieces of information are more easily used. He talks about the importance of cues and stimuli both when learning and in recall, and discusses repressed memories, Freudian slips, the roles of both exercise and sleep in building a better memory, and more. With his advice, you can improve your memory of names and faces, as well as information you’ve heard and read; keep better track of numbers and places—and even remember where you left your house keys and where you parked your car.
