The dictionary defines memory as
the mental faculty of retaining and recalling past experience.
Memory functions are among the most basic and critical brain
functions that human beings rely on for nearly all of the
activities that make life meaningful. It is also the case that
the efficiency with which we process, retain and recall
information is crucial to improving cognitive ability.
People who have studied memory and how it works have
developed techniques for remembering information. These
"mnemonic" devices are memory aids that have been developed
according to the way people store and retrieve information.
Mnemonics are based on the principle that the brain is a
pattern-seeking device, always looking for associations
between the information it is receiving and what is already
stored. If the brain can find no link or association, it
is highly unlikely that the information will be stored in
long-term memory. The Learning Breakthrough
Program™ has a profound impact on neuronetwork
development and the brain's recall efficiency, in terms of
organizational capacity, both of which affect memory and the
storage of information.
The Learning Breakthrough
Program™ uses balance and sensory integration
activities to increase the amount or neuron activity applied
to any given task thereby increasing brain efficiency and
addressing memory on a truly foundational level. Mnemonic devices are memory triggers
(e.g.- using the shapes of the states in order to recall the
names of their capital cities). The Learning Breakthrough Program™
activities work not on the triggers or rote tricks that help
us remember, but the highways on which those triggers
