You Can Improve Your Memory If You Write Things Down with a Pen

Good news:  We’ve got a new trick you can use to really help improve your memory.  Bad news:  You’ll have to use paper and a pen, like a CAVEMAN.

A new study at the University of Tokyo figured out that people remember stuff way better if they HANDWRITE it with a pen and paper.  When we do that, we commit it to memory way better than if we type it.

The researchers think it’s because using a paper and pen is more tactile and so we form stronger memories because it’s using more parts of our brain.
