The right combination of exercise, learning, and wine can improve memory.

  • Exercise improves mood, information processing, makes thinking more flexible.
  • Mentally stimulating activities — such as reading our background articles, observing, analyzing, and discussing the sometimes complex issues presented in film — cause improvements in memory. 🙂
  • For people over 60, light or moderate alcohol intake is associated with better recall of past events, according to a new study.

    But, why wait!
