Without this key part, much of what we previously learn is quickly forgotten.

To see the entire series: Attention Storage Retrieval Once something grabs our attention, our mind immediately begins the next step in learning: encoding. In a nutshell, your brain encodes by translating outside stimuli into thoughts and images. Lots of über-technical and scientific terms explain the brain’s chemistry throughout these upcoming stages of learning, but we’ll
