Memory

dissects a sheep brain to show us "the anatomy of memory." See works of an artist who paints entirely from memory. (Compare his paintings to photos of places.) Play interactive games that test your memory -- learn ways to improve it. Discover why some things are easier to remember than others (droodles game). Which facial features help us remember a face? Which image of the penny is correct? Try a mnemonic device called "elaborative encoding." (Multiple Agencies)

Interesting Fact:

According to experts, relatively minor memory lapses are perfectly normal. People with Alzheimer's disease, a progressive brain disorder that affects 10 percent of the population over age sixty-five, have very serious memory deficits, such as forgetting their children's names or getting lost on the street where they live. For the rest of us, our brains will just show the routine signs of aging, in much the same way that our bodies will develop wrinkles and achy joints.
