Short-term Memory


If you are Christian like me, you will have many fond and vivid memories of holiday celebrations whether it is a family tradition of religious cerebration, decorating the tree, visiting relatives on Christmas Eve or Day, or the menu of Christmas meals. Don’t you wish students remembered information given in the classroom with as much clarity and accuracy? Actually, this is possible with an increased understanding of how three areas of the brain operate: the amygdala, the emotional center of the brain, the hippocampus, the Grand Central Station of memory, and the brain’s reward center.
