What time of day memory works best?

working capacity of human memory depends on the time of day

Have you ever had that conversation with the person you suddenly couldn't remember his phone number or, even worse, his name? And this despite the fact that you remembered all the right information and in a time when the need has passed, you magically remembered? For a long time this unusual phenomenon was not scientific explanation, but recently this secret revealed by Japanese scientists in cooperation with their colleagues from Canada. In the course of a laboratory experiment they have discovered in mice a gene that animals at different times of the day. Perhaps therein lies our forgetfulness.

The Results of this experiment were published in scientific publication . In the beginning researchers suspected that temporary problems with memory can cause the lack of a protein called BMAL1, which is produced in the brain called the hippocampus. He is responsible for many processes in our body and accumulates in our body throughout the day. That is, after waking up it we have very little, but by evening the BMAL1 protein concentration is greatly increased. In theory, it turns out that the memory of living beings, including man, does not work in the morning and reaches its peak efficiency tonight. But is it really?

what determines a person's memory?

To test the hypothesis, Japanese and canadian researchers conducted a laboratory experiment with adult mice. In the first stage of the experiment, the researchers gave the mice to carefully study the brand new item for them. In the second phase, which started later, researchers monitored how much time animals spend near familiar object. As expected, they stayed near him for long because I wanted to make all of its properties.

Perhaps the new work of scientists will save 50 million people from dementia.

The Most interesting part of the experiment started after 24 hours. Mice were divided into two groups: specimens from organisms of the first sample was not subject to change, but the other mice blocked the production of the protein BMAL1. The researchers expect that after waking up, both groups of mice will hold with previously studied the subject much more time, because you won't be able to remember its properties due to lack and complete absence of the protein BMAL1. And scientists were absolutely right — both groups of mice wandered near the subject and tried to remember what it is.

And you know what a loving couple with a good memory

After the experiment, scientists concluded that animals and people do experience memory problems in the morning. It is likely that due to the lack of the protein BMAL1 and we can't remember phone numbers and names of even close friends.

According to the researchers, their finding could develop new treatments for people with memory impairment. They may even be able to create a cure for dementia, from which, according , affects about 50 million people worldwide.
