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

The result is a neural network that can recognise faces accurately. But that’s not all. The network also displays many of the idiosyncratic properties of face recognition in humans and monkeys, for example, the inability to recognise faces easily when they are upside down.

Essentially, everything we are exposed to has a potential for becoming a norm in our brain. When we create heuristics, shortcuts, or otherwise find ways to not only do something and/or improve it we are essentially using the findings of this article in an applied fashion. Our brain has the capacity to become acclimated to whatever we throw at it essentially, but what does that mean for the workplace?

 

How many times have we talked about people being stuck in their perspective at work, or the need to bring in an outside perspective? This reasearch shows that the old addage of "if you're a hammer, everything looks like a nail" seems to hold true after time. The brain actually does begin to process situations based on an unconscious heuristic that allows it to use less processing power than may be used for a novel situation. The implication is that for roles that require creative thinking, and being able to move outside of the box, a person should have exposure to new, novel situations more often and have the opportunity to break out of the basic mental processing process. Applications in learning & development, leadership, and tech are huge here!
