Smarter with Age
Intelligent or Creative memory is being touted as the new model of the brain. It is one in which analysis and intuition work together in the brain in all modes of thought as the mind processes concepts and ideas. Reportedly, this type of memory can strengthen with age if a person decides to hone it. The Google story is but one of countless examples of this type of whole-brained thinking. Neuroscientist Barry Gordon , with coauthor Lisa Berger, provided an overview of this newer model of the brain in their book Intelligent Memory: Improve the Memory That Makes You Smarter.
