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

 

Exercise improves mood, information processing, makes thinking more flexible.

 

Mentally stimulating activities cause improvements in memory—such as reading our background articles, and analyzing and discussing the sometimes complex issues presented in film.  🙂

 

For people over 60, light or moderate alcohol intake is associated with better recall of past events, according to a new study.
