According to a recent study, simply balling up your right hand and squeezing it tightly makes it easier to remember lists. When you want to retrieve this information later, you have to clench your left hand. These movements are thought to activate the brain regions which store and recall memories. The research was carried out in America and lead researcher, Dr Ruth Propper, said: “The findings suggest that simple body movements – by temporarily changing the way the brain functions – can improve memory.”
