Come to the calm of a well functioning brain.
Let's look into the brain function behind memory. The hippocampus is where the memory operates. It is a cashew shaped node of tissue that is deep in the temporal area (just above your ear). This area is the gate keeper of sensory information. The way that a rose smells, how a piece of silk feels, and a phone number that you need to remember, all pass through the hippocampus on the way to the prefrontal cortex. The prefrontal cortex is in charge of short term memory and long term memory. Both the hippocampus and the prefrontal cortex all begin to shrink as we age. As people get older their ability to pay attention starts to diminish. The brain also loses it's ability to process glucose and also loses about half of the neurotransmitter dopamine. Some of the ways of keeping this decline from happening is to exercise and eat a good diet.
Try LENS, it can keep the brain functioning at an optimal level. It is a preventive measure, it keeps the blood flow going.
