The hippocampus regulates memory function. Memory improvement is the act of improving one's memory. Medical research of memory deficits and age-related memory loss has resulted in new explanations and treatment techniques to improve memory, including diet , exercise , stress management , cognitive therapy and pharmaceutical medications . Neuroimaging as well as cognitive neuroscience have provided neurobiological evidence supporting holistic ways in which one can improve memory. [ edit ] Memory function factors
Neurobics are mental exercises , that can enhance the brain's performance, [ 1 ] a scientific evidence to support this idea can be found in Keep Your Brain Alive, Workman Publishing. [ 1 ] [ 2 ] The term neurobics was coined by late neurobiologist Lawrence Katz and Manning Rubin in their book KEEP YOUR BRAIN ALIVE to describe unique mental exercises designed to keep the brain alert.See www.keepyourbrainalive.com [ 3 ] The term was popularized by Lawrence Katz as early as 1999. [ 4 ] It is presumed that unusual sensory stimulation and activities like non-routine actions and thoughts, produce more of such chemicals of the neurobiology system of body that encourage growth of new dendrites and neurons in the brain. Routine actions become so automatic to the individual that most of actions are done largely unconsciously. Such automated or unconscious actions require less activity in the brain, and exercise it less.
The term brain fitness reflects a hypothesis that cognitive abilities can be maintained or improved by exercising the brain , in analogy to the way physical fitness is improved by exercising the body . Although there is strong evidence that aspects of brain structure remain plastic throughout life, and that high levels of mental activity are associated with reduced risks of age-related dementia , scientific support for the concept of "brain fitness" is limited. The term is virtually never used in the scientific literature, but is commonly used in the context of self-help books and commercial products. [ 1 ] It first came into play in the 1980s, and appeared in the titles of self-help books in 1989 [ 2 ] and 1990. [ 3 ] [ edit ] Overview Brain fitness is the capacity of a person to meet the various cognitive demands of life. It is evident in an ability to assimilate information, comprehend relationships, and develop reasonable conclusions and plans.
Meditation music is music performed to aid in the practice of meditation . It can have a specific religious content, but also more recently has been associated with modern composers who utilize meditation techniques in their process of composition, or who compose such music with no particular religious group as a focus. The concept also includes music performed as an act of meditation. [ edit ] History

Creatine supplements are athletic aids used to increase high-intensity athletic performance. Researchers have known of the use of creatine as an energy source by skeletal muscles since the beginning of the 20th century. They were popularized as a performance-enhancing supplement in 1992.
Intelligence is being able to approach a new problem, recognize its important components, and solve it—then take that knowledge gained and put it towards solving the next, more complex problem. It’s about innovation and imagination, and about being able to put that to use to make the world a better place. According to IEET readers, what were the most stimulating stories of 2011?
From Mars to Sirius is the third studio album by the French heavy metal band Gojira . A video directed by Alan Duplantier was filmed for the song "To Sirius". The album cover image bears a strong resemblance to the Sea Shepherd logo, an organization which the band are known supporters of.

Acetyl- L -carnitine or ALCAR , is an acetylated form of L - carnitine . It is a dietary supplement and naturally occurs in plants and animals. [ edit ] Biochemical production and action ALCAR is an acetylated derivative of L -carnitine .
Automation is the use of machines, control systems and information technologies to optimize productivity in the production of goods and delivery of services. The correct incentive for applying automation is to increase productivity, and/or quality beyond that possible with current human labor levels so as to realize economies of scale, and/or realize predictable quality levels. In the scope of industrialisation , automation is a step beyond mechanization . Whereas mechanization provides human operators with machinery to assist them with the muscular requirements of work, automation greatly decreases the need for human sensory and mental requirements while increasing load capacity, speed, and repeatability. Automation plays an increasingly important role in the world economy and in daily experience. Automation has had a notable impact in a wide range of industries beyond manufacturing (where it began).
In science , cognition is a group of mental processes that includes attention , memory , producing and understanding language , learning , reasoning , problem solving , and decision making . Various disciplines, such as psychology, linguistics, and computer science all study cognition. However, the term's usage varies across disciplines; for example, in psychology and cognitive science , "cognition" usually refers to an information processing view of an individual's psychological functions .
Neurogenesis (birth of neurons ) is the process by which neurons are generated from neural stem and progenitor cells .
Nootropics ( pron.: / n oʊ . ə ˈ t r ɒ p ɨ k s / noh-ə- TROP -iks ), also referred to as smart drugs , memory enhancers , neuro enhancers , cognitive enhancers , and intelligence enhancers , are drugs , supplements , nutraceuticals , and functional foods that purportedly improve mental functions such as cognition , memory , intelligence , motivation , attention , and concentration. [ 1 ] [ 2 ] The word nootropic was coined in 1972 by the Romanian Dr. Corneliu E.
Piracetam (sold under many brand names) is a nootropic drug.
