6 Secrets of Exceptional Memory Training Software

6 Secrets of Exceptional Memory Training Software

April 11, 2012  |  Memory Techniques

With the number of manufacturers out there trying to convince consumers to spend their hard-earned money on new products, finding the right memory software has become much harder. There are many products that just don’t live up to their hype. However, just because some memory programs don’t work as promised doesn’t mean that none of them work. In fact, numerous observational studies have shown that memory training, including using memory software, greatly reduces the risk of memory loss, dementia and Alzheimer’s in old age. Nonetheless, there are a number of factors that clearly distinguish effective memory training programs from ineffective ones.


Multifaceted Approach

Learning how to improve memory isn’t the same as learning a few mnemonic techniques. Mnemonics are a great way to recall numbers and names but even they won’t improve your memory on their own. Exceptional memory improvement software takes a multifaceted approach to memory improvement and not only improves your ability to remember names and numbers but also your sense of direction, visual memory, and spatial memory.


The Principle of Neuroplasticity

The manufacture of exceptional memory improvement programs is always based on scientific principles. One of the main scientific principles that comes into play during the design of memory improvement programs is the principle of neuroplasticity. Did you know that your brain is constantly reorganizing itself and forming new neural connections? This means that even if you are already experiencing memory loss, there is hope for you. You only need to train your mind using effective memory training software.


Reduced Effort

Great memory improvement software requires very little effort on your part. It is nothing like learning mnemonics techniques or tricks where you have to put in a lot of effort in order to learn the complex techniques. In a top-notch program, the software developers reduce the amount of effort required on the user’s part by integrating video training into the software. This keeps you from wasting time and effort trying to figure out how the software works.


Quantify Progress

The greatest limitation in trying to improve your memory by reading a book on memory improvement techniques is that there is no way for you to know whether or not your memory is actually improving. It is easy to feel demotivated when you don’t know whether or not your efforts are paying off.



Memory improvement software should be based on an algorithm that enables the software to adjust the training program depending on the user’s needs. For instance, if for some reason you are lagging behind in one area, the software will automatically present you with more opportunities to practice the skill that you need to improve.


Holistic Approach

If you are not getting enough exercise and sleep and eating a healthy diet, you will not be able to enjoy the full benefits of memory software. Most experts know this and some software developers have even began to incorporate tips on diet for memory and how to tackle age related memory loss within the software. This enables you to take a holistic approach to memory loss and how to reverse it.
