I am a student and I can not remember what I studied. What will I do to increase my memory power?

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Research-based strategies to boost your memory and keep it strong 7 Strategies for Remembering 1. Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2. Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3. Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts ("leaves") should be logical.. 4. Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5. When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6. Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a "morning person" or "evening person" at least one Study. suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7. Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam.

Memory fades clinically only due to amnesia. Amnesia, for you to be tested with the help of a neurologist. Another reason for momentary memory loss or problem in semantic memory is due to anxiety and allied problems. You need to ascertain this through some memory tests. You can post a direct private question to me on this regard. I am happy to answer your query. God bless you.

Is there a permanent cure for depression and other mental issues, what medicine is without side effects.
Unfortunately ant-depressants have lots of side-effects. You should go to the roots of depression. If possible, visit a counseling psychologist near your place. You must change philosophy of your life to change the thought pattern loosely called depression introspect, what are your expectations. Expectation bring frustrations. Chasing happiness gives unhappiness!

I have been married 4 months back. My husband was good in the beginning, we enjoyed a lot and we had sex regularly. He spends more time chatting with his friends and asks girl friends to send their photos (not nude) and even makes their friends as his. This was from the beginning but I noticed it recently. He hides many things from me. When I knew that he chats and questioned him He started deleting chats. He watches porn videos a lot and says that he is doing his work. He keeps a hand on me while sleeping and engages himself in chatting. He spends a lot money for his family and thinks a lot to buy many thing for me. He even drinks beer and eats non veg. He promised me that he will stop drinking. We have sex now a days only on weekends. He enjoys watching porn videos without me. We are not happy in our relation. I love him a lot and please suggest me something.

I think his true colors are just being revealed. Many of us portray a very good side of ours before marriage and for some time after too. But in time that ‘acting’ will cease and the true nature will emerge. If you are not happy with what he is doing then confront him, and you may do so openly in front of his folks or yours to make it more effective. But how much you can change him is a big question unless he himself wants to change. The reduction in sexual contact shows that he is getting his gratification from the porn and viewing other girls’ photos. If he is eating non-vegetarian and drinking beer that is a matter of choice and unless there is abuse of the substance and loss of control we cannot say that that is bad in itself. You must be more effective in dealing with him otherwise this will become the pattern of the relationship, forever. Then if he is willing you can both go for marital counseling and continue with that person until your matters are resolved. If all this does not produce results, then you must take a call, even if you love him passionately.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. There are no effective medicines to directly quit smoking. These medicines manage your anxiety and restlessness related to withdrawal. Deaddiction therapy is more suitable. You can also use nicotine gums for intermittent usage so as to help in quitting smoking. Take care.

Sir/madam how should I get more in power to gain marks in exams and can't concentrate on studies how should I get it and is their tips to follow them.

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS), Masters in psychology counselling
Psychologist, Hyderabad
Dear lybrate-user, try this method many people are success first and most sleep early wake up early at 4.0 am and study with fresh mind, of course subjects which you are not interested you must spend more time and repeat it many times" practice makes perfect". Switch off mobile phone when you go to bed and switch it on at 6am. Example some people they don't like mathematics but it is essential for life everyday and every time we are depended on mathematics, right from doctor to business man, including vegetable seller, we can understand many other distraction disturbed minds it is like love issues. Still not able to concentrate go for counselling help.

This started in feb 2011 since I was having inferiority complex towards my short hight. Sometimes I felt like socially abused due to this. i developed social anxiety due to this .things related to hight or to improve it keeps running on my mind and I was unable to come out this. Latter I diagnosed as a case of OCD. Finally in july 2011 I admitted to the hospital due to depression and diagnosed as a case of bipolar disorder (taken carbamazepine 800 mg for 3 years) then stopped by my Dr. After 6 month I again relapsed and now taking lithium 800 mg daily and stable .my problem other than depression is a kind of ocd. Due to my short height I developed sever social anxiety. I keep on checking my height to others and to give me assurance I think of some person who are of my height and looks better. When I pass to a person of my height I compare it with mind in my mind only. Latter on images of those people keep running on my mind. Those images of short people and thought related to my height bothered me a lot when I told this to doctors they told that it will go away with the time. Latter on situation improved and these thought and images gone away completely. I started living a normal life like others. Now these thoughts and images still comes but after many months and only for a week or two and then goes off automatically. This time after so many months (almost a year) it came back and bothering me lot. Now these image and thoughts keeps running on my mind so frequently that it interrupts daily routine .unable to focus on things like tv and all. I do not want to those images to irritate me. Now from few days I am having problem with my sleep. It gets interrupted and I feel like frightened, anxious and wake up with little racing heartbeat. By the time I have started lorazepam 2 mg at night. How to stop these racing thoughts. Is there any medicine or therapy can help me? Can I live a secure life? Will it be passed to my son?

Dear lybrate-user you seem to be running a commentary of questions. First of all, let me reassure you that it is not at all compulsory that your son would have your illness. Psychiatric disorders have a hereditary role but the risk if calculated as compared to general population (I mean the ones that do not have any diagnosed psychiatric disorder) is greater. As far as your complaints are concerned being a case of bipolar your treating psychiatrist must have informed you about the nature of illness. It is characterised by relapses. The time duration between episodes may vary. Whenever a relapse occurs it is quite possible that you may have varied symptoms, even OC symptoms. So consult your treating psychiatrist for appropriate changes in your medications so that OC symptoms are dealt with. Also you may go fir behaviour therapy under a trained therapist or psychologist.

Dear lybrate user, welcome to lybrate. Anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. I suggest anger management therapy. Anyhow, there is nothing to worry. Most of the psychological problems can be cured with scientific therapy methods. Take care.

Dear, You must understand the difference between alcohol addiction and abuse. You can definitely quit alcohol in one go. Just stop it and swear not to drink again. Engage yourself in games and other engaging activities during evenings or when you feel the urge. Just a week, your habit should change. There are many other methods, which you can see through internet. The best method is what I suggested. Please try it without fail. Take care.
