Squeeze to remember

"Memory can be improved simply by clenching the fists, a study suggests.
Clenching the right hand for 90 seconds helps in memory formation, while the same movement in the left improves memory recall, say US psychologists.
In an experiment, 50 adults performed better at remembering words from a long list when they carried out these movements."

This is interesting because I had just read an article by Nikola Tesla where he mentioned that he would clench his feet 100 times a day. He claimed it helps with his mind. Guess he was right. This seems like an easy way to exercise your mind and body, and apparently even your memory. It sounds like it has something to do with the brains ability to create new neurons/ brain cells with physical exertion. It was once though that our brains couldn't generate new neurons and as we aged and lost them, we couldn't get them back. Recently they figured out that we actually can make new ones and that working out is the most effective way.
