A new study has discovered that if a person required remembering information all they should do is take a short nap.
It was Avi Karni, a brain researcher from Israel’s University of Haifa who conducted the new research which looks at the possibility that naps help people to lock in long-term memories.
The study found that a 90-minute daytime nap might actually help to rejuvenate one’s memory.
“We still don’t know the exact mechanism of the memory process that occurs during sleep, but the results of this research suggest the possibility that it is possible to speed up memory consolidation. In the future, we may be able to do it artificially,” said Karni.
Here’s something interesting to know! A memory that remain with us and which we remember for years on end, such as “what” memories is what we refer to as our long-term memories. While, “how-to” memories are those which refer to a car accident that happened say yesterday or like a person’s ability to play the piano or even a game of hockey.
