  1. Jim Quick. In my opinion, the best technique in the world.

    A person who has suffered a serious head injury has proved by his example that anyone can develop memory to unprecedented heights.

    I recommend it.

  2. First, you need to understand the causes of memory loss. This may be a sign of a medical condition or simply a weakening of memory as a cognitive function of the brain as a result of its inactivity.�

    What to do first:

    To understand whether this is a violation, you need to consult a doctor and undergo the necessary examination. If there are no abnormalities, then this is a natural decline in the cognitive function of the brain. The brain, like the muscle, weakens and functions worse if it is not trained. Brain training stimulates overall performance, increases brain tone, and some-separately pump specific functions. For example, we were taught at school that memorizing poems trains our memory.

    Scientific approach:

    To study the properties of attention and memory, a method of sequential visual search for numbers was developed. Psychiatrist and psychotherapist Walter Schulte suggested using a 5-by-5 field with numbers from 1 to 25 written randomly.�

    The task is to visually find all the numbers in ascending and descending order, without using additional tools and notes.�

    In the course of applying this technique, it was found that “Schulte Tables” develop not only various properties of attention, such as concentration, switching and selectivity, but also contributes to the development of memory, oral counting and peripheral vision.

    To study the properties of memory, a visual-spatial test called the Corsi problem was developed in 1970.

    9 wooden blocks moved according to a given algorithm, and it was necessary to remember and reproduce this algorithm. The use of MRI revealed that this task involves areas of the brain responsible for visual thinking and attention regulation. Thus, the Corsi test improves short-term, visual and spatial memory, as well as increases the speed of mental operations.

    How to train:

    The use of these techniques allows for a comprehensive approach to memory training. In them, as in any other, the system is important. The Wikium service develops simulators to improve the performance of the brain-attention, thinking, and memory. They are all based on scientific methods of brain research. In particular, memory simulators are based on Schulte tables, the Corsi test, the Wundt method, the Ebbinghaus forgetting curve, and others. To develop a healthy habit of regular training, the service sends reminders about daily activities, as well as monitors your progress and adjusts your development program.

    1. You do an EEG. Memory problems are always a consequence of brain disorders. EEG is the simplest and safest study that reveals difficulties in the work of a particular part of the brain.�

    2. Do an MRI of the brain, and preferably with contrast, to look at vascular changes, since our memory is highly dependent on the blood supply to the vessels. The study is more expensive, but it will pay off, because without an MRI, you will never know if you have any neoplasms in the brain that also impair memory. Don't worry, if you only have memory problems, then you probably don't have any tumors. However, if there is a small benign one, then it is important to find out about it as early as possible.

    3. With the results of both studies, go to a neurologist/neurologist, even if nothing special is found in you. You describe to the doctor all your problems: both with memory, and with such things as sleep, coordination of movements, mood and emotional reactions, stress, appetite, etc. In any case, your neurologist will prescribe nootropics or something like Glycine. And if he sees more serious problems, he will start treatment. Without medication, a sharp deterioration in memory can not be corrected.�

    4. You can download apps to improve memory and other brain functions, personally, I recently passed almost all the Skills levels.�

    5. Do not load your brain with unnecessary information, do not require it to be memorized at your whim. A brain filled with garbage goes on strike and refuses to remember what's important. To relieve your brain, you can have a “little black notebook” where you will write down daily tasks and meetings, as well as small notes. Or you can use the app for this purpose.�

    6. Finally, banalities: forget about alcohol, smoking, drugs, energy drinks, fatty foods, drink less coffee, eat more nuts and fruits, go to bed no later than 23 and wake up no later than 7 in the morning. Walk or bike more often in the fresh air. Check messengers and other people's social media profiles less often. Read serious books and scientific articles, listen to audio lectures, watch high-quality movies and TV shows, and listen to classics. Meditate, it unloads the brain, if without fanaticism. Go to the gym and swimming pool, moderate physical activity also improves memory.�

    Good luck!

  3. Start with a comprehensive examination of the entire body. See a psychiatrist and neurologist. Only on the basis of data that no diseases or any problems have been detected, you can start developing memory.

    Such a symptom, alas, can be a manifestation of problems in the body

  4. My dad told me this method: every night before going to bed,put a few items in a box, and in the morning remember what they put.
    And every day to put more and more items.

  5. It is necessary to be examined first by a neurologist, most likely, to undergo an MRI of the brain and cervical spine. The reason may be poor blood circulation and partial destruction of cells (this happens and it is not fatal).

    From tablets, nootropics can help (it is better to consult a doctor). It is better to buy glycine not in pharmacies, but from Now Foods – it is cheaper to order it on iHerb. It is also important to get enough sleep at night. If you are constantly working mentally, take days off, this is important.

    Reading books and training your memory is good, but first you need to put aside your physiological problems. Without a healthy biological background, cramming will lead to nothing.

    One of the psychological reasons may be frequent sitting on the Internet, when the focus of attention jumps and the brain forgets how to concentrate.

  6. And I liked another nootropic for memory – Divaza. I was afraid that there would be side effects, as many people do, but there was nothing like this. The brain vessels received the necessary nutrition, and information was absorbed more easily.

  7. The human brain is built with an amazing ability to remember, and it is not for nothing that the words “I praise You because I am wonderfully made” are written in the Scriptures (Psalm 138: 14).The brain was designed as a vessel from which you can draw without fear of emptying it. With such a unique brain, a person could live forever .To improve your memory, the best way to make it work is by reading. Learning professionals emphasize the importance of repetition. In one study conducted by a university professor, it was clearly shown that the amount of memorized information increases twice if you immediately set aside one minute for repetition, telling someone about what you learned. It can be a member of your family, an employee, a neighbor, or someone else.

    Reading even slows down Alzheimer's!

  8. In my personal experience, studying the exact sciences is great for training the brain and,as a result, memory.The fact is that the quality of remembering something directly depends on the ability to build logical chains and create logical associations.Therefore, I would advise everyone to take up the alpha and omega of the universe-mathematics.

  9. Do research for the presence of multiple sclerosis, dementia and Alzheimer's, and not on the Internet to look for tips on how to train your memory. Because forgetting everything in a row and confusing words are already very disturbing symptoms. Solve crosswords for your health, but only after you are either diagnosed or rejected. I wish you good health!

  10. I would advise you to read this article hereMemory properties , in addition to some simple principles of its operation, the article describes several techniques for using them, I think this can help you. If, by the way, you really care about the topic of memory, get acquainted with the biography of such a person as Joshua Forr. He is our contemporary and you can find his performances on YouTube. The guy was a journalist and came to a mnemonic competition (a specific sport in which the main task is memorization). He was amazed at how people remember the order of cards in 30 decks, reproduce the patterns of snowflakes, reproduce the chapters of books word for word… A year has passed and at the next such competition he is.. became the winner. A person has every right to give advice on this matter, which he does. check out the article, there is also an insert with his TED talk, among other things, which may be interesting for you.

  11. You need to record everything. Start a daily planner. You can keep a voice diary. Then remember everything you need on your own, and if you can't remember, then look in the notes. Read books. A variety of genres. Start learning a foreign language. You need to train your memory constantly.

  12. I don't like boring exercises and learning poetry. Here I found a sooooo entertaining book on the Internet. It makes me and my family smile and have fun. It is called “The best games for memory development”. Here we have collected the most interesting tasks for memory development. I always take it with me everywhere and train: walking in the park, square or on the way to classes.

  13. Perhaps you should help your brain with nootropic drugs or herbal supplements like Ginkgo Biloba. Good drugs are Tanakan, Phenotropil, Nootrpil, Piracetam. You should visit your doctor and ask them to prescribe a regimen.

    PS Here I answered about sites where you can train your brain�thequestion.ru

  15. In principle, everything has already been said, I will add that your lifestyle and state of mind have a very strong influence on memory and its performance. Therefore, when there is a question about improving memory, be sure to pay attention to the sleep mode, its duration, the mode of work and rest in general, and nutrition. You may not need any training at all. I've been through this before. And everything quickly returned to normal, after the normalization of the daily routine.

    Good luck to you)

  16. Not a fact, but it is very likely that this is a consequence of mild depression. Try meditation, increasing your Omega-3 intake, DPDH, and sports. Perhaps a psychologist can help. I recommend that you learn meditation from the short lectures given by Yonge Mingyur Rinpoche. Or you can buy a book. The important type of meditation is mindfulness meditation.

  17. Memory is not a muscle, but it needs to be trained. Learn poems by heart, new foreign words, song lyrics, streets, house numbers, phone numbers, everything that is interesting. It is also necessary to return to the absorption of text in large volumes: not vk posts, but at least stories. And try not to do a lot of things at the same time and not get too distracted-you'll chase two hares, you won't remember any of them:)�

    Glycine also helps for memory. But still, if the memory has deteriorated sharply, it is better to go to the doctor and find out if this may be the result of something serious.

    Good luck to you!
