The Memory Object - Use Every Day Objects to Increase Memory

Abandoned Railroad CarThis article will discuss how to increase memory using Memory Objects. This system is extremely effective to increase memory when used in combination with the Roman Room. The object memory system uses your mind’s incredible ability to remember objects and spatial information.

If you went through my article on the Roman Room you already have a good idea of how to use a memory house to increase memory. A memory object is similar, except you can use parts of your object to store memories.

How to Improve Memory


This article series discusses how to improve memory. This series covers four articles describing different ways to improve memory. Click here to go to the first article, or continue reading for a synopsis of the articles.

Healthy Neurons

The first article covers how to improve memory by understanding neurons. Your brain is built from cells called neurons. Since every memory you’ve ever had is stored using these neurons, you can improve memory by strengthening them. Charles Darwin did numerous experiments to determine the size of caged animal’s brains versus wild animals. The wild animals had significantly larger brains than the captive animals. Wild animals are smarter because they deal with more complex environments than caged animals. Click Here to learn about how to improve memory by enriching your environment.

Improving the Hippocampus

Brain scanning science allows scientists to distinguish what functions of the brain occur in what locations. The hippocampus is the part of the brain that deals with memory. Overall, a lack of stimulus in this area of the brain can be observed in people with bad memories. Therefore, scientists believe that you can improve memory by doing activities that stimulate this area of the brain. Click here for 10 ways to stimulate your hippocampus.

Increase Concentration

A memories’ initial impression is incredibly important. Oftentimes, a bad memory is only a lack of concentration while creating the memory. Therefore, improving your concentration can significantly improve memory. Click here for some simple exercises that you can do to improve concentration.

Intensity, Duration, Repetition

If you want to learn how to improve memory, you must learn about improving a memories’ intensity, duration, and repetition. This article will cover various exercises that you can do to improve intensity, duration, and repetition of your memories. Concentration is critical to memorization and can be broken into two important subcategories: intensity and duration. Intensity: The vividness with which you experience a memory. Duration: The duration that the memory lingers in your mind. Finally, we add one final concept to the mix: repetition. Spaced repetition describes the optimum review periods for any memory. By combining duration and repetition with correct review intervals, you’ll be putting your memories into an impenetrable safe that you can access any time (click here to skip to this article).

Let’s get into the first article. Begin here by learning how to improve memory with healthy neurons.
