Secret of sharp memory revealed

///Secret of sharp memory revealed

iq intelligenceIt has been always considered that a good memory is connected with individual capacity to store more information. Now scientists believe that the main role in this process belongs to an individual’s ability to concentrate and filter the incoming flow of information.

Scientists made an experiment with a group of volunteers. They were asked to memorize only red objects in pictures, without paying attention to objects of other colors.

During the experiment a special scan was recording brain activity of subjects.

The best results were showed by those who had the ability to ignore unnecessary information.

Thus, scientists came to a conclusion that visual memory skills don’t depend on the ability of the human brain to remember more information but on its ability to approach this information selectively.

At the same time, researchers believe that people, who are less able to filter information, can be more creatively gifted since their brain stores various information.
