Science has developed by leaps and bounds lately and almost all forms of science have become very advanced because of the research and develop being conducted in their respective fields. The only science which is still under great controversy in the science based on the brains power, the mental domain and the memory speculation which is other wise called as neurosciences or neuropsychology.
Mind is an amazing thing conceptualized by god. Its power and capacity knows no boundaries and man is yet to tap this power fully. It is said that man only uses a fragment of his mental capacity. Researches are always been done to increase this power or in the field of memory development. Memories are recorded events in the mental domain it is just like the computer encoding. Everything that happens is recorded in the brain and whenever need the information is retrieved.
But how is it that we can retrieve only certain events or information and not all what we see? All the sensory organs work together when we perceive something. For example let us we are in a pizza corner and placed before us is a beautifully decorated and mouth watering pizza. Our eyes see it, mouth tastes and we feel the texture too. This experience while eating a pizza is recorded in the memory. When you go back home you explain about the whole incident with every minute details as if you had a photographic memory.
How could you do this, when you even forget what you ate for dinner last night? Your full attention and all your sensory organs were focused on the pizza and so it was easy to retrieve the data stored, but last night your full focus and attention was on T.V rather than the food you ate. So memory encoding and retrieval highly depends on the attention it is given. In many cases trauma, accidents or depression might cause temporary memory loss which mostly is curable. Memory plays a vital role in the overall development of a person. His intelligence is judged by his memory retention capacity.
Without memory nobody can function normally because it creates an identity. Memory capacity thus depends on the attention and the sensory perceptions. People suffering from memory loss are thus given methods or exercises for memory development. Students usually forget things easily before of the attention deficit as they are distracted by so many other things. When they know the memory development techniques then they can memorize and study much better. Usually children easily remember things which they like, so it is natural that they don't give a damn about things or subjects which they hate.
Memory development is a new concept these days and everyone wants a sharper memory. No doubt many new age gurus and institutions have already cashed in on this sudden demand. When you open the paper or browse through the internet there are so many sites and ads which allure people of high mental power and strong memory development courses and techniques. People who are really affected because of memory loss are mostly students and elderly people.
Everyone possesses a memory capacity and even overloaded this capacity might also be cause for memory loss. But then human beings cannot remember almost everything around them. Then there will only be chaos and confusion. Many people will always be depressed or will be affected by anxiety. It is good to forget at least the bad things in life. Leave alone this life what will happen if we were to remember and have memories of all our past lives if at all it is true. What a great confusion it will and nearly all human being will definitely become insane.
Thus memory development should be focused to increase the general working capacity to aid our normal functioning. Students weak in studies can use this memory development tools to enhance their capacity. Even elderly people or business associates can learn this memory development to brush up and know how exactly they can remember imperative things that needs to be stored as memory. Actually positive people learn from their memories. Therefore memory development should lead to human advancement and better functioning rather than for any other reason.
