An article in Glamour Magazine talks about 5 secrets of your brain. These ‘secrets’ are just some of the content neuroscientist Sandra Aamodt, Ph.D., coauthor of Welcome to Your Brain speaks about in her book.
While I question whether any of them are really a ‘secret’, I do find Secrets #2 and #3 interesting and relevant for those interested in Brain Fitness.
Secret #2: Because of sex hormone’s in a woman’s brain, women tend to be able to recall objects’ locations better than men – such as where you parked your car or left your glasses. The ability to recall locations relies on what is often referred to as Visual Working Memory. One of our training series, Visual Intensive, actually focuses on improving visual working memory.
Secret #3: Human brains do have a memory peak in their thirties. And unfortunately, as we age, our memories do get weaker. Dr. Aamodt suggests physical exercise as the best way to stay sharp as exercise increases blood flow to the brain. However, we also have proven that brain fitness exercises like those in BrainHQ can also keep your memory sharp well into your later years.
