Can HSAM be Treated?

There is currently no treatment to treat HSAM. However, HSAM sufferers are recommended to always have a check up to test the brain ability. As for you, your memory might not qualify for HSAM status, but there are things you can do to improve and boost your memory. Here are few tips:



Being sleep deprived directly impacts your ability to remember things. Sleep actually triggers changes in the brain that solidify memories strengthening connections between brain cells and transferring information from one brain region to another. A study found that short sleep can negatively impact some aspects of brain function to a similar degree as alcohol intoxication. On the other hand, good sleep has been shown to improve problem-solving skills and enhance memory performance of both children and adults.



Moderate-intensity exercise can improve your memory and may even increase the size of the part of your brain involved in memory. Research suggests that working out improves memory, boosts thinking skills, and encourages brain cells to grow as we age. Any form of exercise will do, particularly anything that involves focused movement or requires learning new skills. One recommendation is brisk walking for at least 2 1/2 hours each week. Physical activity also tends to improve mood, sleep habits, and stress levels, all of which can cause, or lead to, cognitive impairment later on in life.



By the time you have reached adulthood, your brain has developed millions of neural pathways that help you process and recall information quickly, solve familiar problems, and execute habitual tasks with a minimum of mental effort.

Memory, like muscular strength, requires you to use it or lose it. The more you work out your brain, the better you will be able to process and remember information. But not all activities are equal. The best brain exercises break your routine and challenge you to use and develop new brain pathways. You can play games that require your brain to work such as chess, crossword puzzles and sudoku.
