Alcohol Helps You Remember What You Learned Earlier, Study Shows
We’ll drink to that.
Drinking booze after learning new information can help our brains store away what we took in when we were still sober, according to new research, even though alcohol is traditionally linked to problems forming memories.
The word-learning task given to the study participants sheds some more light on the way alcohol affects memory, and the way the brain stores information in general, though we wouldn’t recommend getting drunk every time you’ve got something new to remember
