Attention and memory

Is widely known the statement, attributed to Oliveru Holmes in whom it is said, that «the person should remember something that then it forget. It is impossible to lose no what you have. Frequently the person considers, that suffers from forgetfulness when occurred to it actually speaks that to it never was possible to remember something well, that is, he did not pay to it due attention. The considerable quantity of cases of forgetting actually speaks not presence of bad memory, namely insufficiency of the storing caused by absence of attention. That who wishes to remember any event, first of all it is necessary to be attentive, to concentrate on a subject of storing and to be assured, that all was remembered. So, when the person does not know, where it has parked the car, it does not speak that he has forgotten about it but only that he meaningly has not paid to this attention at the moment of fulfilment of maneuver of a parking. Undoubtedly, he thought about something the friend or excitedly talked to other person and consequently in its memory there was no storing of a place of a parking of its car. In an everyday life the similar repeats often as ability of attention to concentration is limited enough. So, when the person with enthusiasm talks to someone, it cannot simultaneously concentrate the attention to a place in which has left keys from the house.

Memory and study

Sometimes students complain, that forget the learnt material. Probably, they have not learnt a material so well that it could be considered as the remembered. In exercises on storing the attention is more closely connected with student's labour productivity, ie, Time spent by students on process of study. Considering, that ability of attentive listening of a material has restrictions, it is necessary to put additional efforts and time for a data recording in memory. To overcome these restrictions, it is possible to use various means about which we will tell later.
