New York City, NY (PRWEB) November 27, 2012
A newly-released study conducted by the University of Wisconsin has confirmed that stress is a leading factor in poor short-term memory function. As the researchers showed with their tests on laboratory rats, being stressed breaks up the brain connections that allow you to remember information stored in short-term memory. This “working memory” is necessary to maintain productivity and effectively complete tasks; if the neurons in the brain are distracted, they will not communicate with each other effectively, and the necessary links in a chain of memory are broken.
Commenting on the study’s findings, Ultimate Memory creator Marc Slater said, “Today it's more imperative than ever to fully manage our stress triggers. Stress is a ruthless enemy when it comes to short-term related skills; our focus and attention are severely compromised because of stress and anxiety. Now that research backs these suppositions we must take the necessary steps to actually address the issue, and work to lower stress in our lives.”
Stress has been proven to adversely affect health, and with this study it's clear that stress actually impedes a range of intellectual skills, like memory and attention. Stress creates a sort of upheaval in the prefrontal cortex of the brain, creating all kinds of distractions that make it impossible to remember things, much less improve your memory. Accentuating the urgency of reducing stress, Slater states: “We have both the knowledge and methods to improve memory; we can’t just let stress control and deteriorate our lifestyles. Memory improvement techniques can greatly assist our efforts to be more productive and adept at multi-tasking. If you want to improve your memory, stress has to be eliminated.”
To keep short-term memory fit and strong, people need to identify the source of their stress and effectively combat it. The next step is to start exercising memory in ways that will reduce distractions as well as prevent the delay of retrieving important information saved in short-term memory.
