No gimmick is he pfc if it is too difficult by Ghita Levine women s news service there s an Alligator in the Entrance Hall his Tail wrapped around the coat rack and his gaping Mouth swinging just a few inches off the carpeted floor. Squashed into the Hall closet is a bearded giant his huge eyes bloodshot and furious As he Waits hunched up for someone to let him out. Moving into the Kitchen hundreds of papers Are strewn about the floor and on top of the Formica table sits the biggest Green bottle you Ever saw. Tacked onto the Windowsill is an immense ticket stamped with the Date. 1776. A s House a Nightman no. Just a new twist on memory exer Cise that really works most of us have trouble remembering All the information that gets pumped into our Heads. So we resort to Little tricks gimmicks that help our recall. Some people list everything they want to remember in alphabetical order. Alligator comes first because it starts with Tiffit comes bottle. Giant papers and ticket follow on the list. Others put words into a sentence. The Alligator took the bottle away from the giant who was sorting so on. And Many people use imagery sketching a picture in their minds of All the information they need to remember. But whatever the Gim micks they Are of no use if they re too difficult to remember. Many of the things that have worked with Young College students in associating information Don t help older people if they can t remember what the Cue says David Arenberg psychologist at the gerontology research Center in Baltimore. People remember the last ones easily. But they have More trouble recalling the first part of the list. With a new Telephone number for example older people can handle All the digits without any difficulty. The problem arises when the line is Busy and they have to dial again. By then they re More Likely to have forgotten the number and need to look it up again. It s not so much the length of time that to the problem As it is the distraction explains or. Arenberg. If there s an activity in Between the recall is lost. At Issue he says is not the storage of information in the brain. It s retrieval bringing it Back where he believes it remains securely lodged. It s probably Back in he says tapping his head but you can t get it so or. Arenberg and Elizabeth a. Robertson Schabo. A fellow psychologist at the research Center looked for a recall trick that did t rely on memory in the first place. What we were looking for was a Mnemonic the technical term for that kind of memory gimmick that did t require the older per son s less ring a new or. Robertson Schabo explained. And they came up with something As familiar As a person s own Home. In a test of their technique on 30 older persons each person was asked to take a mental tour through his or her own Home going slowly in sequence from room to room and stopping in their mind s tour at 16 spots along the Way. Then they were Given 16 words one at a time each on a separate Cue card and told to link them with each of the 16 places in their Home. The first word was stuck in the Entrance Hall. Giant came next and. Depending on the person s layout he went to the closet or into the next room. And so on. The critical thing is the picture you be got to see the Alligator in that Entrance Hall in order to remember or. Robertson Schabo explained. The imaginary tour completed acid the cards returned participants were asked to retrace their Steps and recall the words. At first most people remembered less than half. But after drilling the technique with new words once a Day for five Days in a Row everyone got so they could remember 14, 15 or even All 16 words. It s a useful trick for anyone at any age and the Beauty is that if you get lost you simply return to the front door and begin again. Just Slot the words that you need to recall in crucial spots in your own Home tour and. Chances Are you la remember them when you need them. But the Best trick of All. Says or. Robertson Schabo. Is to realize what happens to memory with age and to learn to write things Down. Make a list before you go shopping. Have a checklist of your House to run Down before you go out or go to bed.
