To improve memory, enhance attention and other cognitive abilities

Memory_attentionRemem­ber­ing, as en Extreme Sport (The New York Times):

We found that one of the biggest dif­fer­ences between mem­o­ry ath­letes and the rest of us,” said Hen­ry L. Roedi­ger III, the psy­chol­o­gist who led the research team, “is in a cog­ni­tive abil­i­ty that is not a direct mea­sure of mem­o­ry at all but of attention.”

In short, mem­o­ry cham­pi­ons are not only excep­tion­al at remem­ber­ing. They’re also experts at for­get­ting. To put it anoth­er way, com­peti­tors stum­ble not when they remem­ber too lit­tle but when they remem­ber too much.”
