Smarter About Memory

Some thing about your memory are instantly apparent: you forget something you need. Or, later, you realize you forgot something. You may observe someone forgetting something occassionally. Or, you may see a pattern, in how people remember and forget.


On MemoryBeach, we realize that you may have an appetite. Or, you may not. What you decide to eat, or how you decide to eat, is defined in part by what's in your environment. 


The same is true for learning. People expected to learn, surrounded by books, the internet, teachers, and mentors will learn very important things about memory. In turn, they will share those findings with the rest of us. MemoryBeach's basic value to you is that we read deeply about memory processes, starting with molecular interactions involved in memory retention and loss, all the way through to remembering to pay a bill.


You will see references on MemoryBeach's website for some of the sources we consult. We welcome collaborations with researchers and makers of all types, all on the quest to add value and knowledge to the mechanisms of memory, the creativity of design and manufacturing, the efficiency and socially responsible manufacturing and shipping, and finally the consultation of the on-going use of our products.


We also believe that friends and family are the best sources of research about each other; people make observations, puzzle over causes, and want to share. Please do so, on our Facebook page, twitter account, or via our email. We'd like to hear what you're observing, learning, and doing.


MemoryBeach is committed to you to get smarter about memory, and invites you to do so, too.
