A group of Australian scientists claim to have unlocked the secret to improving human memory retention. And it’s hidden in the words you read on your computer. They have developed a brand new font, called Sans Forgetica, which they claim will improve your ability to retain written information.
Sans Forgetica was developed using the very big brains of typographers, designers and psychologists all connected to the RMIT Behavioural Business Lab. The trick behind this magical font is that it forces our brains to slow down and work harder to process the words in front of us. When that happens, our brains are more likely to remember the information we have read.
And while Sans Forgetica — which is free to download — was mainly designed with students in mind, it could easily be used to assist young or elderly readers, or even patients suffering from brain injuries or Alzheimer’s disease.
