Staying quiet could help you remember something

posted by Scotty -

We’ve all had those moments we want to remember forever, but often our memories play tricks on us and specific details escape our brains as soon as they enter. Well, a new study suggests staying quiet right after something happens may help you remember those things later. The study out of Heriot-Watt University finds that calm surroundings help in memory retention, while silence helps strengthen those memories, which makes them easier to recall later. “We think that quiet resting is beneficial because it is conducive to the strengthening of new memories in the brain, possibly by supporting their automatic reactivation,” Dr. Michael Craig, a research fellow who led the research, explains “However, we don’t know exactly how this rest-related memory strengthening works. Specifically, it remained unknown whether quiet resting only allows us to retain more information, or whether it also helps us to retain more detailed memories.” Source: New York Post
