Remembering things can be challenging, but there's one easy way to try to get important facts to stick: draw a picture. University of Waterloo researchers have found drawing works your brain in ways that writing alone does not, forcing it to process visual information, translate the word into an image and carry out a physical act all at once. Study co-author Melissa Meade, a doctoral candidate in cognitive neuroscience at Waterloo explains, "It’s bringing online a lot of different brain regions that you wouldn’t bring online if you were just writing information out. We think this multifaceted approach of using the drawing technique benefits memory and the brain." Older adults are thought to have the most to gain from using this method. Also, it's notable that you don't have to be good at drawing to benefit.
Wow! Too much work, Dude!
