Quiet Rest after Learning Will Help to Memorize Details

A new study from the United Kingdom suggests that a simple quiet rest, just for 10 minutes, may help to memorize new information in fine detail.quiet rest

To study this effect, the researchers designed a memory test to assess the ability to keep finely graded information. For the experiment, the researchers took the information on memorizing from 60 young male and female participants whose average age was 21 years.

Michael Craig, a researcher from the Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, United Kingdom, says: “This new finding provides the first evidence that a brief period of quiet rest can help us to retain more detailed memories.”
