Brain of famous amnesiac

Brain of famous amnesiac | Cognitive Psychology. Cognitive and behavioural Neuroscience | Scoop.it
If you know that a small seahorse-shaped structure deep in the brain -- the hippocampus -- is crucial to committing new facts and skills to memory, you have not only your hippocampus to thank; you also owe a debt of gratitude to Henry Gustav Molaison, known to brain scientists worldwide as the amnesic patient "H.M."

Neuropsychology: Power naps produce a significant improvement in memory performance

Neuropsychology: Power naps produce a significant improvement in memory performance | Cognitive Psychology. Cognitive and behavioural Neuroscience | Scoop.it
Psychologists have shown that a short nap lasting about an hour can significantly improve memory performance. The study involved examination of memory recall in 41 participants. The volunteers had to learn single words and word pairs. Once the learning phase was over, the participants were tested to determine how much information they could remember. About half of the participants were then allowed to sleep, while the others watched a DVD. After that, the participants were re-tested and those wh
