Ryuta Kawashima's study method for building a better and stronger brain, as recommended in his book Train Your Brain: Understand what you are studying and put it in its proper place. Continue studying until your brain establishes the expressway for efficient learning. One effective method is to think about the relationship between what you are studying now and what you have studied before, and put it in its proper place. Study over and over again. It is easy to quickly forget what you have learned if you stop studying once you have mastered the basics of something. Study the same subject matter over and over to broaden and strengthen the expressways connecting the cells in your brain. Study well and quickly. You can make progress easily if you build lots of broad expressways and establish a network among cells throughout the brain. If you can study both well and quickly, it means the expressway network has been established. Memorise many different kinds of things. The brain has different places for storing different types of memory. Many different places in the brain will be activated if you memorise various things. Concentrate on studying. Try the following experiment. Put a coin in your pocket. Can you tell by feel which side is head or tail? Where do you look while you are feeling? Do you look at the wall or the ceiling? Do you close your eyes? The brain ignores activities that interfere with concentrating on feeling the coin. As a result, you close your eyes or look absently at something. Once the brain starts concentrating on something, it tends to ignore other activities. If you concentrate on studying, you can make good progress. Study every day. You need to train your brain to create a keen brain. If you eat right and exercise every day, your body will become stronger. The same is true for the brain. Study is exercise and food for the brain.
