The Brain and Geotagging

Standard

Neurologists have recently proven that spatial references are stored in the brain and linked with experiences to make memory recall more efficient. It’s been suspected that this kind of connection exists, but only recently has an experiment been performed that attempts confirmation. It’s interesting that rather than using actual physical sites in the study, researchers designed a computer game that has participants remember delivery sites and the items delivered to each. The video is below, but you should check out the post about this over at Canadian Geographic.
