WELLNESS 09/25/2018 05:45 am ET An explanation of how alcohol can erase part of your night out. By Jenna Birch If you’ve ever woken up from a night of drinking, realizing you have very little memory of the events that took place, you know how scary a blackout can be. But even more worrisome is what goes on in your body and brain during that period. According to George Koob, the director of the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, blackouts are “a gap in the tape” of your memory, so to speak. “At roughly twice the legal limit, a blood alcohol content of .16, you become vulnerable for a blackout ― although this varies,” Koob said. “In a blackout, alcohol shuts down the ability of the brain to consolidate memories.” Scary, right? Experts describe exactly how alcohol works in your system when you’re drinking heavily ― and how to tell when you’re getting to the point where you’re at risk … [Read more...] about This Is What Happens In Your Brain When You’re Blackout Drunk

Everyone has moments of forgetfulness from time to time. It’s called short-term memory loss, and it can be inconvenient and embarrassing. Your short-term memory is where you store small bits of information usually for only 15 to 30 seconds. You use your short-term memory to remember things temporarily, such as a phone number you need to immediately jot down. It also acts as your brain’s filter, deciding what information to keep and what to discard. Short-term memory keeps your brain from being overwhelmed with useless … [Read more...] about Natural methods to improve your short-term memory

Health The trick to a sharper memory? A walk in the sun, new science claims. In small doses, UV light can trigger chemical processes that enhance memory and learning in mice, University of Science and Technology of China scientists found, and there’s hope the rays have the same effect in human brains. In a study published in May in the journal Cell, scientists exposed a group of mice to UVB rays, a short-wave ultraviolet light, for two hours--the equivalent of 30 minutes of sunlight. Researchers then evaluated the mice’s motor skills with a rotarod test, in which the mice balance on a rotating rod, followed by a memory trial in which mice had to sniff out the novel object in a familiar setting. Exposure to mock-sunlight increased levels of urocanic acid in the mice’s blood, which was converted in the brain to glutamate, a neurotransmitter released at the motor cortex, where voluntary movement originates, and hippocampus, the brain’s main storage unit for … [Read more...] about Sunlight Boosted Memory in Mice–Could It Do the Same for Humans?
