Taking photographs runs the memory, research finds

Our obsession with recording every detail of our happiest moments could negatively affect our ability to remember them, to new research.

Dr. Linda Henkel, from Fairfield University, Connecticut, described this as the ‘photo-taking impairment effect’. She said, ‘People often whip out their cameras almost mindlessly to capture a moment, to the point that they are missing what is happening right in front of them. When people rely technology to remember for them – counting on the camera to record the event and thus not needing to attend to it fully – it can have a negative on how well they remember their experiences.’

In Dr. Henkel’s experiment, a group of university students was led on a tour of a museum and asked to either photograph or try to remember objects on display. The next day student’s memory was tested. The results showed that people were less accurate in the objects they had photographed compared with those they had only looked at.

Read the following passage then choose the best answer to each question below.

The start of every New Year is when we make plans to change our life for the better over the forthcoming twelve months. Psychiatry professor Jayashri Kulkarni says, “January 1st is a ‘magical’ date and a vow made on this day is much more powerful than the one made on June 1st, for example.” So, we make a list of things to quit, start or change. Unfortunately, most of these promises are, more often than not, broken by January 31st. They are usually the identical resolutions that were not fulfilled from the previous year, and the years prior to that.

Researches show 45 percent of us make a New Year’s resolution. The most common vows including losing weight, volunteering to help others, quitting smoking, saving money and getting fit. Others include eating healthier food, drinking less alcohol, and going on overseas trips. However, researches also show that most of us are not so good at sticking to these. A study from the University of Scranton reveals that 71 percent of us stick to our annual promises for the first two weeks; six months later, less than 50 percent are still on track to keep their resolutions. Most people who give up on their do so because of a lack of willpower and the use of the ‘escape clause’ that they will ‘try again next year.’
