Explore how the brain learns and stores information, and find out how to apply this for more effective study techniques.
A 2006 study took a class of surgical residents and split them into two groups. Each received the same study materials, but one group was told to use specific study methods. When tested a month later, this group performed significantly better than the other residents. So, what were these methods? Explore how the brain learns and stores information and how to apply this to your study habits.
Directed by Biljana Labović.
Animation by Laura Angelucci and Teresa Marques Lopes.
