#MemoryCondition A brief (and optional in this series) neurology-based discussion of the process of making memories. This includes the development of the understanding of the memory system, retrograde and anterograde amnesia, and trauma's strange effect on memory. The Memory Process In A Nutshell 1. external events occur 2. Stimuli encounters the 5 senses (iconic, echoic) 3. Senses transport data to the working memory - holding area 4. central processor - controls how much attention is given to the contents of the working memory (episodic buffer, visuo-spatial sketchpad, phonological loop) 5. Long-term memory - data stored and potentially available for recall, it can be explicit (episodic or semantic) or implicit (procedural or emotional) Look Closer: McGill University: Memory and Learning The episodic buffer: a new component of working memory?

#MemoryCondition In gaining an understanding of the memory system, it is important to recognize that memory functions are happening throughout several distant but interconnected regions of the brain. In this two part episode, we'll tour the parts of the brain at work in the memory process, starting from the front and working backwards. As each function is described, you can decide where you feel there might be room for improvement. The Memory Process In A Nutshell 1. external events occur 2. Stimuli encounters the 5 senses 3.

#MemoryCondition In this introduction to our exploration of memory improvement strategies, I discuss the problem of information overload (or "Data Smog"), the motivations for pursuing this topic, the importance of doing a memory self-assessment, an outline for this series and the power of attention. con·di·tion kənˈdiSH(ə)n/ verb, gerund or present participle: conditioning bring (something) into the desired state for use. Our conditioning will be broken into three phases: Registration (learning, capture), retention (processing, storage), recollection (making it useful at the ideal time) Series Motivations - My memory problems - teaching history - Zinn's A Peoples' History of the United States - cultural or social memory problems - SAT tutoring experience - method over memory, rote and repetition - Evernote and GTD: an over-reliance on methods and devices? The keys and obstacles to a strong memory - combining a high level of attention with a controlled distribution of attention - there is no bad memory panacea - there is a clear problem though; it affects us and it will probably affect our children even more: a very widely-distributed low level of attention Self-Assessment - "how good is my memory?" is not the right question - is memory a natural ability or lack thereof? - memory is not uniform, there is a variety of memory tasks - Break your assessment into 4 categories: Knowledge, Events, intentions, actions A list of reliable online memory assessments: University of Washington Short-Term Memory Test MemTrax Memory Test Psychology Today Memory Test Rutgers University Memory Self-Tests (verbal and Visual) Ohio State University Self-Administered Gerocognitive Examination (SAGE) You can use this comprehensive assessment from Douglas Herrmann's book Super Memory.

take it with you


Iphone_trans Listening to podcasts on your mobile devices is extremely convenient -- and it's what makes the podcasting medium so powerful.

You can take your favorite shows and mixes with you anywhere, but to do so requires some quick and simple steps.

Let's walk you through that process together.
step 1:


Click the "Subscribe With iTunes" link in the page's sidebar:

Subscribe_with_itunes

This will require that you have the iTunes software on your computer.

(You can download iTunes here.)
step 2:
Itunes_ss

Now that you've subscribed to the podcast on iTunes, the feed will display in your "Podcasts" section on the left navigation bar.

Click there and you'll see the show displayed in the iTunes browser.

You can "get all" to download all available episodes or just individual episodes.
step 3:


Plug your mobile device (iPhone, iPad, iPod) into your computer with the Dock Connector cable, and click the device in iTunes's left navigation bar.

Itunes_ss2

Once you have your device highlighted, click "Podcasts" in the top navigation bar and sync the podcasts you want on your device. Click "apply" and the episodes you have downloaded on your iTunes software will sync with your device.
that's it!

The beauty of this process is that now, every new episode of your subscribed podcasts will automatically sync to your device every time you plug it in and open iTunes. You can now take your favorite shows with you everywhere you go.

Enjoy!
done!
