Learning is a process. Our brains work in mysterious ways that go beyond highlighting and taking notes. The way we study is as important as the material we are trying to consume and digest. We can spend hours reading only to find out next morning that we remember very little, and that all those notes we painfully wrote down on our organized notebooks are just but decorative calligraphy.
The brain is an unknown continent still, and scientists are trying to help us access it and understand it so that we can become better students and people.
These are a couple of websites that can help you have a better relationship with your brain along with other websites that I like.
