However, repetition is not necessary when you see something you like. Or when you read something which interests you. One reading will lay down the memory forever. What about tasting something that you find disgusting. Or smell something you like. Those memories remain with you even though you only experienced them once, Audrey@homeschoolsource.co.uk

Why We Need to Teach Mindfulness in a Digital Age | PBS

Why We Need to Teach Mindfulness in a Digital Age | PBS | 21st Century Concepts- Educational Neuroscience | Scoop.it

"Recent brain imaging studies reveal that sections of our brains are highly active during down time. This has led scientists to imply that moments of not-doing are critical for connecting and synthesizing new information, ideas and experiences. The average American consumes 34 gigabytes of content and 100,000 words every single day, according to the 2008 report from UC San Diego. To put these numbers in perspective, one gigabyte is a symphony in high-fidelity sound or a broadcast quality movie. In the midst of this multimedia blitzkrieg, the importance of mindfulness and focused attention is rising. If we can't cultivate mindfulness and focused attention while sitting quietly in a room, then how can we expect to bring these qualities of mind into turbulent circumstances -- both on and offline?

Psychologists link emotion to vividness of perception and creation of vivid memories

Psychologists link emotion to vividness of perception and creation of vivid memories | 21st Century Concepts- Educational Neuroscience | Scoop.it
Have you ever wondered why you can remember things from long ago as if they happened yesterday, yet sometimes can't recall what you ate for dinner last night?

 

It's all about how much emotional impact the memory carries with it. Memories are clearer when they're emotionally arousing.

 

According to Rebecca Todd, a postdoctoral fellow in U of T's Department of Psychology and lead author of the study published recently in the Journal of Neuroscience, "Whether they're positive -- for example, a first kiss, the birth of a child, winning an award -- or negative, such as traumatic events, breakups, or a painful and humiliating childhood moment that we all carry with us, the effect is the same.""How vividly we perceive something in the first place predicts how vividly we will remember it later on," says Todd. "We call this 'emotionally enhanced vividness' and it is like the flash of a flashbub that illuminates an event as it's captured for memory."
