Our memory enables us to participate at all levels of life and is the essence of who we are.
Why is memory important?Memory is important in everything we do, be it learning a new skill, performing in a job or carrying on relationships. Having a good memory makes life easier, from going shopping, finding things around the house, showing people we care and accessing knowledge and information that we need. Over a period of years, as we age, memory normally becomes less sharp. This is frustrating, and can be concerning and worrying, especially in this age where dementia is increasing everywhere.
How memory worksWe now know that memories are formed with involvement from many different parts of the brain. The brain works like a hologram, so memories are mapped using many different brain centres. However, certain parts of the brain are more specifically involved with memory. For instance the hippocampus has been identified as being a primary storage centre for memories, something like a filing cabinet. When new memories are formed, firing of brain circuits actually creates new pathways, which are stored for reactivation when needed. So forming memories is actually building the brain. This is because our brains are plastic, so new structures and functional circuits can be formed in response to any stimulation, including thinking.

How to enhance your memoryEveryone is naturally concerned about keeping their memory functioning as well as possible for as long as possible. The advice we are given on supporting the memory is to exercise, eat a healthy diet, do brain training exercises and take up new forms of study like music, languages or doing puzzles. This is all very good sound advice. Some even better “sound” advice is that we can actually stimulate the brain with sound! All of the above activities help to form new memories and train the brain as they activate circuits through new learning and engagement. However, we can also build brain circuits through sensory stimulation, and one of the most effective and enjoyable ways of doing this is with music. But not just any music. Classical music has been shown to have a particularly powerful and lasting effect on brain activation due to its complex harmonic structure.
