The Secret Life of the Multi-Tasking Mind

The Secret Life of the Multi-Tasking Mind | Brain Science | Scoop.it

How to achieve peak performance when it comes time to focus...In other words, our brains don’t enable multi-tasking in the conventional sense; they actively discourage it. The paradox, of course, is that the brain is multi-tasking internally precisely so that, outwardly, we can concentrate on one thing at a time

Study Finds Clenching Your Fist Could Help Boost Memory

Study Finds Clenching Your Fist Could Help Boost Memory | Brain Science | Scoop.it

If you find yourself straining to remember the details of a dinner you attended last week, perhaps you should try making a fist with your right hand.

A new study published in the journal PLOS ONE shows that clenching your hands into fists could help form memories -- when the right hand is clenched -- and remember the memory later on -- when the left hand is clenched.

"The findings suggest that some simple body movements -- by temporarily changing the way the brain functions -- can improve memory," study researcher Ruth Propper, of Montclair State University, said in a statement. "Future research will examine whether hand clenching can also improve other forms of cognition, for example verbal or spatial abilities."
