Research indicates memory can be enhanced by: 4) Simply reading the information out loud to yourself helps most people to remember. 2) Drawing a picture illustrating the concept. 3) Tell someone about it. Read it out loud, summarize the new data, and tell another person about it in your own words. 4) Additonal research on how telling someone about the new data enhances memory. I remember research indicating that keeping a concept on your mind for longer than 6 seconds enhances memory. If you want to remember where you parked your car, focus your attention on your car and the surroundings for several seconds, not just one or two seconds.
