Ge­nius tech­nique for faster learn­ing

First For Women - - Insight -

While you work on mas­ter­ing the jar­gon in your begin­ner pot­tery class, make up ges­tures you as­so­ciate with each word. In a study in Cur­rent Bi­ol­ogy, when peo­ple stud­ied un­fa­mil­iar words, then took a test, those who paired new words with ges­tures out­per­formed those who only listened to or read the terms. The au­thors say a mul­ti­sen­sory ap­proach to learn­ing helps the brain make firmer con­nec­tions and bet­ter store new in­for­ma­tion.
