Nap

Smart naps

We know that napping is good for you but now we know why a nap makes you smarter. Subjects in a new study undertook a rigorous learning task at midday intended to tax the hippocampus, the region of the brain that stores fact based memories. At 2pm one group had a 90 minute nap while the other group stayed awake. Then at 6pm the subjects were given a new set of tests. Those who stayed awake did worse than they had done at noon while those who had napped improved their capacity to learn. This reinforces the idea that fact based memories are temporarily stored in the hippocampus before being sent to the brain’s prefrontal cortex which has more storage space. Sleep clears short-term memory storage making room for new information. The argument is clear; “If you want creativity this afternoon boss, I’m going to need a nap.”Meanwhile if you visit Meijer Ad that contains mostly likewise discounts with Winn Dixie Ad you surely have a range like ALDI Ad.
