Good news: We’ve got a new trick you can use to really help improve your memory. Bad news: You’ll have to use paper and a pen, like a CAVEMAN.
A new study at the University of Tokyo has figured out that we remember stuff way better, if we HAND-WRITE it down, with a pen and paper. When we do that, we commit it to memory, way better, than if we type it.
The researchers think it’s because using a paper and pen is more tactile; so we form stronger memories because we use more parts of our brain, to do so.
