Abstract

The neuroanatomical basis study of the memory process investigated that the left inferior prefrontal cortex was associated with memory processing and activated preferentially. This study further demonstrated the most efficient memory process for memorization tasks based on the above experiment. Twenty-five participants performed in this experiment, the age range is between 20 and 56. There were three kinds of memory tests: orthography, word property, and semantics. Each test corresponded to a question respectively: the question of the orthographic test was “Does this word contain ‘A’”, word property test was “Is it a countable noun”, the last one was “Is it a living creature”, and then participants were asked to recall if they had seen the presented word on the screen. The results showed that participants were more impressed by the words they remembered through word property and semantics. In other words, processing memory through thinking about word property and word meaning can be more effective than the orthographic process. This experiment is dedicated to contributing to the field of education, advertising, and memory recovery therapy development.
