Can you remember lists of vocabulary easily? If the answer is 'no,' help may be near. A study says anyone can upgrade their memory if they train their brain. We can train our brain to be a "memory athlete," like athletes train their body. Scientist Martin Dresler said six weeks of training can help people remember many things. Dr Dresler said people could train their brain to enter the World Memory Championships.

Dr Dresler looked at MRI scans of the brains of 23 memory champions and the brains of "normal" people. He was surprised to find no differences. This made him think we can all become memory athletes. Dresler studied people who did 40 days of training using a memory technique called mnemonics. They more than doubled their memory. Mnemonics is an old method that helps people remember things, especially in lists. It could help you with your vocabulary.
