Long Term Memory and Conflict Resolution


In the Daily Dose

Long and short term memory are part of our every day life. Did you know there is something specific you can do to improve your long term memory over time? This means you can remember more accurately the things that have happened to you in the past and create more lasting memories to draw on in the future. In the News today discusses how to use the research published from the University of Bonn and University of Birmingham to improve your memory.

In 'Is It Fact or Fiction?' you'll discover whether or not there is a day of the week during which you are more likely to have a heart attack.

In The News

Research team, headed by Professor Doctor Nikolai Axmaceer from Ruhr-Universitat Bochum with colleagues from the University of Bonn and Birmingham discovered that the hippocampus of the brain, known to be responsible for long-term memory, is also involved in quick and successful conflict resolution.

Because the hippocampus is also essential for memory, the speculation is that data may eventually help us understand how the two are related and how they interact. For instance, permanently unsolved conflict will not be able to be used for learning helpful lessons in the future. 

The model appears to demonstrate that the brain works like a filter which responds well to conflicts which were resolved but not those that were unsolved.

Daily Health Tip

At first it might seem that this research would have no bearing on your everyday life. But, in fact, this would not be true!

There are significant benefits to increasing the number of resolved conflicts you experience in your life. Living under less conflict also means living under less stress and with better health. This research also may lead scientists to find the link between resolving conflict in your life and learning more about yourself and improving the potential for your future.


Making Changes

Every day we make a choice about whether or not we’ll resolve conflict with the people in our lives. Although it may not feel like a choice, we all have the ability to make that choice. The other person in your conflict may not be interested in resolution, but that is when you have to make your apologies and move on. You get to make the choice in your own life, you can’t make a choice in someone else’s.

Start today by examining the relationships in your life and trying to resolve the conflicts that remain.
