The Myths Behind A Goldfish's Memory and How You Can Improve Yours
In popular myths many believe that cultures have just a three-second memory span however they can actually recall information for up to five months, just as we recall information too. Scientists have found that fish trained to respond to certain sounds in captivity still reacted months later when they heard them in the wild. After a month of training, the fish were released back into the sea and left to their own devices. Five months later when the same sound was played when in captivity the fish returned. This not only disapproves the theory of their memory but also indicates that they have similar memory skills as us. If we train our brain, then we can improve our memory.
If you don’t challenge your brain with new, surprising information it eventually begins to deteriorate. Research into brain plasticity shows if you provide your brain with appropriate stimulus, you can counteract degeneration. One way to challenge your brain is by doing so, via brain or even memory games, which you can play online, in books and on apps. If you decide to play games to improve your memory then it is wise to spend at least 20 minutes a day, but no more than five to seven minutes is to be spent on a specific task. When you spend longer amounts of time on a task, the benefits weaken.
The foods that you eat play a vital role in your memory; obviously fresh vegetables are essential just as healthy fats are. As example celery, broccoli, cauliflower and walnuts contain antioxidants and other compounds that protect your brain’s health and stimulate the production of brain cells.
