And for those who are bad at drawing, it's perhaps even better news is that the level of your tegneevner is not essential that the method works.
in any case It is the conclusion of a new study from a team of researchers at the University of Waterloo, Canada, writes Science Alert.
Data from the 48 participants included in the study, and there is thus a small studio.
Half of the participants were around 20 years old, while the other half was about 80.
All participants completed the same series of exercises where they had to describe a series of words, either by:write the word describe the word, for example, the physical properties of the word drawing it, as the word represented the
After a pause, having all of the participants to recall as many words as possible, and while the younger half remembered more words than the older one, so it was for both groups, that they remembered most of the words they had drawn.
the Researchers believe that the method is so effective, because more areas of the brain activated when one is drawing.
the Information can so to say be worked both visually, spatially, verbally, betydningsmæssigt and motor at once.
the Scientists hope also that the method for the older age group can strengthen the defense against illnesses like Alzheimer's and dementia.
- We believe that drawing is particularly applicable for people who suffer from dementia, because it better utilizes the parts of the brain, which is still preserved, and that it can help these people who have a cognitive impairment, to remember, says one of the researchers, Melissa Meade, in a press release from the university, writes Science.dk.
On a more practical level, researchers suggest that you can draw your grocery list instead of writing it.
