Improve Memory

Hi, Erin here. I’m a memory improvement enthusiast and the author of this site. I grew up in Boston and moved to Cambridge two years ago to pursue my master’s degree in physics.

For the past 6 years I have studied basic neuroscience in labs at MIT and Harvard. I have worked extensively with both human subjects and experimental animals, using a wide range of scientific techniques to explore the basic biological functions of the brain.

Originally my plan and course of action was to go into medicine (well, before I decided to switch majors from biology to physics during my 3rd year of college — I graduated in 5 years) because I wanted to help people with neurodegenerative diseases of the mind. However, after a little digging around, I ultimately learned that there were no cures and very few effective treatments for the kinds of diseases I was interested in. I then questioned how satisfied I would actually be in medicine and opted instead to go into research.

Thus I began my career believing nanoscience and nanotechnology would be the answer to curing disease and keeping us healthy. I am looking forward to pursue a PhD in nanophysics after I finish my master’s degree in physics.

Over the past 3 years I’ve used my training in science to dicover a rich body of scientific literature on how future applications of nanotechnology will be able to prevent and cure almost all of the major diseases that plague modern society, including many neurodegenerative diseases.

And it is not particularly farfetched to say nanotechnology will just as well vastly improve our memory and cognitive functioning by the exponential factor, when humans transcend biology — when we become cyborgs, when we begin to conduct our interaction with direct brain-computer interfaces via an exocortex to augment our memory and high-level cognitive processes.

But until that happens, good memory and mental health are currently our greatest innate resources and though they sometimes seem elusive, anyone can achieve them. Long-term mental health and memory improvement are within your reach, but you can’t rely on a short-term plan to get you there.

The key is practical training. Practical training, and memory exercises that will deeply ingrain your memory techniques into cognitively integrated reflexes.

Thanks for visiting – and I wish you many noetic betterments…

Best wishes
