THE PROBLEM WITH UNIVERSITIES
Memory research is conducted at universities around the country.
This research is mostly theoretical, and the results are often stated
in technical language which is not easily understood. Researchers
are interested in learning about our memory, but they are not interested
in telling us how to apply the results of their research to improve
our memory. They want to research for the sake of researching, getting
famous, making discovery, or getting published. The information
memory researchers have discovered has stayed in scientific journals,
because nobody wants to read and re-explain the technical jargon.
I decided to conduct a comprehensive review of this research, and
looked into all the discoveries which have been made.
After reviewing this research, I decided that someone needed to
translate this information into terms that we can understand. The
findings were powerful, and I couldn't believe that no-one was giving
this knowledge to students. I wanted put this information together
in a way so that students could start using this knowledge immediately
to help them with their school work. If you apply the scientific
findings presented in this chapter and throughout this book, you
will see, as I have, dramatic changes in your ability to remember,
think, and concentrate. What you are about to learn is based on
this research and extensive analysis of the discoveries made concerning
the workings of the mind.
Research in the field of psychology has recently shown that we
can gain control of the other 90% of our brain's capacity that most
of us never use. There research is there, but because its stayed
in sophisticated, scientific terms, so no-one ever decided to look
at this information and use it until now. We are about to use this
information for the first time.
