About Memory, Part II – Podcast with Fiona McPherson

About MemoryThis is the second installment of a Radio Free Learning podcast with Dr. Fiona McPherson, author of The Memory Key and curator of the About Memory Web site. In the first installment we discussed some of the keys to memory and why most memory courses don’t result in long-term memory improvement. In this second episode we discuss the brain training craze, how the brain changes as we age, and why effective note-taking (the topic of a recent book by Fiona) is so important.

Here’s the MP3 file link (17:29 minutes long) in case you do not see the audio player below (or click through to the original blog post).
