Other sites related to memory and learning
  1. Brain Connection - high quality materials on education, learning, memory, and neuroscience (see Learning and Memory section)
  2. Society for Neuroscience - neuroscience news releases and popular scientific articles (Brain Briefings)
  3. Flashcard software review - SuperMemo is included in the winner's gallery but, surprisingly, its repetition algorithm is described as "rigid", while lack of Leitner cardfile system is considered a negative! The opposite is true, Leitner system may serve user's mental comfort, but it will not meet the retention criteria that are the strongest point of SuperMemo. The review makes a meticulous cross-comparison of all well-known flashcard applications using a set of well-defined predetermined criteria (see: requirements). Note that SuperMemo meets nearly all the listed criteria for determining a "good flashcard application". See also the review winner: VTrain

Users of SuperMemo are aware that it does not "take time to keep records of the material" (in incremental reading you only use the mouse to point the computer to what is important while all the learning process proceeds automatically). Neither does SuperMemo require to "know things indefinitely" (the user determines the retention level for a given period of time for portions of material)

  22. http://www.gocreate.com - resources for a creative mind including Creativity Timeline and links to other sources
  23. http://www.neurobics.com/exercise.html - a site that introduces and explains the concept of neurobics, i.e. multisensory stimulation targeted at activating growth in the nervous tissue of the brain: When you change to writing left handed, the large network of connections, circuits, and brain areas involved in writing with your left hand--which are normally rarely used-- are now activated on the right side of your brain. Suddenly your brain is confronted with an engaging task that's interesting, challenging , fun and potentially frustrating. Making multi-sensory associations, and doing something novel that is important or engaging to you --these are the key conditions for a genuine Neurobic exercise

This is the amazing brain. The beauty of the brain lies in its incredible complexity. The neuroscience challenge is to transform the mind boggling appreciation of the central nervous system's complexity into manageable proportions. This site has been designed as the starting point to studying the amazing brain
