People with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) don't need an expensive medication or any medical procedure to save their memories…
According to a new study published online in Brain: A Journal of Neurology, people with early symptoms of Alzheimer's disease can improve their memories by simply using memory techniques.
The study explains that using memory techniques can help the brain develop new pathways for learning and improve memory. Keep reading for the full scoop.
Study ties memory techniques to better scores on memory assessments in people with mild cognitive impairment
The study looked at 15 elderly people with MCI. It found that the patients improved their scores on a memory assessment by an impressive 33% after they learned how to properly use word lists and memory devices like mnemonics.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) explained the mechanism behind it: The memory techniques appeared to boost activity in certain regions of the brain that are associated with learning skills, processing language and remembering space and objects, said study researcher Sylvie Belleville, director of research at the University Institute of Geriatrics of Montreal in Canada.
"I've just uncovered evidence that it's finally possible to improve your memory...
And experience fresh, focused thinking...
...in as little as ONE HOUR!"
Turns out, there's a Bavarian farm about 603kms north of where I landed in Switzerland, that has a very unusual - and very powerful - plant growing in its garden.
If you saw it, you might think it was mint...or maybe just a regular old weed.
But thanks to the results of three clinical trials, we now know that it can help your brain:
• Recall events and conversations exactly the way they happened...
• Stay focused and alert, even if you're under intense pressure to perform...
• Plus it makes your thought patterns more efficient...as information flows effortlessly between neurons.
And it can do ALL of that - starting in just one hour.

Study also shows that even the brains of people with MCI have plasticity
Belleville explained that the learning improvements observed in the study are likely a cause of brain plasticity. Brain plasticity – also called neuroplasticity – is an odd term for most people. It refers to the brain’s ability to change the way it learns in response to external factors.
Brain health experts had long thought that brain plasticity decreases in people with MCI, but this study shows that even the brains of people with MCI have plasticity. Belleville said this is a ground-breaking discovery for delaying the effects of Alzheimer’s disease.
“We have evidence, here, that there’s a lot of potential for brain plasticity in this early stage of memory loss
