Researchers in the United Kingdom found that test subjects who doodled while listening to a recorded message had a 29 percent better recall of the message's details than those who didn't doodle. The findings were published in Applied Cognitive Psychology.

- apparently doodling has the effect of keeping us awake enough to hear what's being said, instead of dozing off or day dreaming.

Very interesting. People truly interested in how the brain functions will be fascinated by www.dana.org This press publishes the latest research on the brain. Their print publications include "Brain in the News" which summarizes the latest articles from science digests, and BrainWork, which is a neuroscience Newsletter. The Spring 2009 issue has a great article on Controlling Blood Glucose May Fend Off Cognitive Decline. The bonus in that article is that there is an explanation of how the hippocampus works that is actually a great primer for lay persons. Memory is one of the most fascinating parts of the brain, no?
