The AOL/Huffington Post has been branching out into lots of interesting editorial directions since their recent merger. One that hold particular interest for students is the Memory and Cognition section of the popular web news outlet. I visited there for the first time today and read a half dozen excellent articles on memory boosting techniques. One revealed some memory tools and practices that have been handed down since antiquity. There were ones here and here that revealed the memory eroding effects of cigarette smoking and alcohol intake respectively. Even one that extolls the memory enhancing benefits of Mexican food (yay tacos!). And there were plenty more articles dealing with the impact of sleep deprivation on memory and lots of other useful memory and cognition related subjects. Good reads all if your goal is to improve your aptitude and success in online studies at Allen School Online.
