Too Much Laugh Can Lower Your Memory
In a study shows, that when people laugh or in a happy mood then the memory of it will decline.
Another case when a math teacher who sternly told her students memorize multiplication arithmetic. A tense silence sometimes it makes the mind sharper, making them easier to memorize the multiplication of 1 to 100.
Research conducted by Dr. Elizabeth Martin of the University of Missouri shows that positive emotions such as joy and pleasure instead reduce the ability to remember for a moment. However, negative emotions did not automatically improve memory.
In the experiments done, Dr Martin involve a number of volunteers who were divided into 2 groups. One group was shown some funny videos, while another group was shown a video tutorial that is sure boring tile installation.
