Jing Chen, Ph.D.Aerobic exercise can help motor skill learning by protecting previously learned procedural memory from subsequent interference tasks (for example, subsequent declarative memory). The primary motor cortex may play an important role during this process. When we examine this has happened, we will perform three experiments to see if our hypothesis is true. In the first two experiments, we let participants perform procedural memory immediately followed by declarative memory or a ...

Sanjeev R. Bhatia, B.P.T.Human memory and the ability to recall vast amounts of trivia and unrelated information have intrigued scientists and researchers for quite some time. However, sometimes memory is inconsistent in its retrievability. Research on memory often focuses on “consolidation,” used here to refer to the organization of memory in the brain over time to make recollection more permanent and easily accessible. One technique is called chunking. Chunking is used in daily lif...
