Memory: Why it’s take time and repetition to remember..?

1.  Simply our #neuronand in brain has physiological limit to build and grow only a few new connections #synapses per day ; it's limitation of our biological nature.
 
2.  The stronger connection btw #neurons – the better memory and it's usually achieved by multiple repetitions.

3. Time duration like 2 - 2.5 hours are most efficient for brain to #study new information or activity: nor lessnot enough time to build #neuron connections, neither more – brain getting tired through #somatic reaction (getting board, start yawning, lose concentration).

4.  If you not use those new knowledge or ability, those connections (#synapses) will die off after some time.

5. For example, it's much easy for #brain to prepare to exams if you study regularly during semester (as some basic #synapses is already built in the brain), than we try to memorize it last day before exams  (something you'll learn, but majority material 'will be lost next days).

In #brain new connections are constantly formed and reorganized (it’s called brain morphology, #neuroplasticity   or #brainplastisity ).

Therefore, if you study a little bit, but regularly/often your brain can physiologically handle it.
 
In general, our brain resist strongly to work hard (therefore you often find yourself running btw fridge/kitchen and books when you try study).

Brain like to run on default mode (usually driven by #limbic / #instinctive / #unconscious part of our #brain - less energy consuming, but #hormonally rich)

It because it's very energy consuming for our body to think hard. Usually normal brain is 1/50 mass of our body, but when it's come to energy consumption, it's extremely high compared to other part of our body.

When we study/thinking hard, our #brain consume up to 25% of all #energy (food that we eat) and up to 25% of all #oxygen that body consume vs 9% of food and 18% of oxygen when we are not study (watching Tv for example)..

During childhood, and particularly during adolescence, a process known as "synaptic pruning" occurs.

Although the #brain continues to grow and develop, the overall number of #neurons and #synapses are reduced by up to 50%, removing unnecessary neuronal structures and allowing them to be replaced by more complex and efficient structures, more suited to the demands of #adulthood .
 
In #neuroscience , #memory   describe like  a long-term #potentiation (#LTP) is a long-lasting enhancement in signal transmission between  neurons that results from stimulating them synchronously.

Research indicates that when a #memory is first recorded in the brain — in the #hippocampus , to be specific — it’s still “fragile” and easily forgotten, especially if the brain is asked to memorize more things. Napping, it seems, pushes memories to the #neocortex , the brain’s “more permanent storage,” preventing them from being “overwritten.”

It is literally impossible for our brains to multitask

When we think we’re #multitasking , we’re actually context switching. That is, we’re quickly switching back and forth between different tasks rather than doing them at the same time.

Research shows your #error rate goes up 50% and it takes you twice as long to do things.

Your #vision above all other #sense = #Eyes   is the #Brain   outside

Hear a piece of information, and 3 days later you’ll remember 10% of it. Add a picture and you’ll remember 65%.

How chronic pain affects brain and personality
Our personalities are influenced by changes in our lives but really dramatic changes are caused by chronic pain or illness which can completely change a person. According to a  recent study published in PLOS ONE, researchers compared the brains of the chronic pain patients with those of healthy controls and found that chronic pain patients had greater activity in in the prefrontal cortex which is involved in emotions, cognition and behaviour. They claim this higher activity is because of the fact that chronic pain patients focussed more on their pain.

Ice Bubbles
Photo credit: Chip Phillips
Ice bubbles in Abraham Lake, located at the foot of the Rocky Mountains on the North Saskatchewan River, in Canada. The bubbles are created from methane released by plants in the lake, which freezes as it rises through the lake. The rare phenomenon occurs each winter in the man-made lake.

You still have chance to be a creator! ;-)
Research shows evidence that we can alter our brains to enhance our creative thinking — all through the power of art.

The iLens -- the "Smart Contact Lens -- will be available in May 2015. What do you think?
Apple just announced the launch of the iLens, a smart contact lens that works like the Google Glass but “better” according to James Milton, an Apple rep. The iLens costs $299 for 64GB and $499 for 124GB, and Apple hopes it will compliment the iWatch and iPhone. The iLens comes with a ...
