Multitask Better, If you want to upgrade your brain like Eddie Mora from Limitless, then unfortunately you won’t find it to be as easy as taking a single pill.
Instead, you’re going to have to look at more arduous and lengthy strategies, including such things as brain training or improving your overall health.
If you choose to go the brain-training route though, there is one especially effective and ‘easy’ method that you may find helps you to see the kinds of results you’re looking for.
That method is to focus your training on working memory.
But what does that actually mean?
What is Working Memory?
The traditional view of memory split out capacity for storing information into three separate categories.
Those were: working memory, short-term memory and long-term memory.
Short-term memory was described as containing all the information that you remember for a while, but that would ultimately be ‘sent to trash’.
This includes such things as people’s names, or what you had for breakfast.
Long-term memory meanwhile includes all that information that you will remember indefinitely: the names of your friends, the night you proposed, how to tell the time etc.
Working memory, based on this description, was effectively your brain’s equivalent of RAM.
This is where information would be stored that would only be required for a very short amount of time.
The most popular example is a phone number that you are going to write down.
In turn, the working memory – based on the traditional view – could be broken down into a ‘visuo-spatial scratchpad’ where we would visualize things and a ‘phonological loop’ where we would repeat things to ourselves in a bid to not forget them.
Today though, psychologists are recognizing that working memory has much more in-common with visualization in general.
This is our ability to internalize information, whether that’s memory, imagination or something else.
In short, this is our ability to create a representation of the world whether for predictive purposes or something else.
In conversation, this means keeping track of what’s been said and what’s next.
In sports, it means knowing where everyone is on the pitch.
When working, it’s what allows us to multitask and switch between different things.
This is nothing short of crucial for your ability to work quickly and effectively.
How to Train It
The good news is that there is a proven method for increasing working memory and that is to train using something called the N Back test.

The Best Brain Foods for Eating Your Way Smarter
When you think of becoming smarter, you probably think about studying hard, doing lots of math and generally putting in time and effort.
But what if I told you that you could get smarter by eating? We all love eating, so in theory this should be no hardship at all.
But if you choose your foods wisely, you’ll find it can make a significant difference to your brain function and overall mental performance…
So, without further ado, here are some of the top brain foods…
Oily fish is absolutely crucial for optimum brain health.
Why? Because it contains omega 3 fatty acid.
This benefits our brain in two ways.
Firstly, omega 3 fatty acid can be used to build cell walls.
It is incorporated into their formulation, which means that lesser materials get replaced.
In turn, this results in brain cells that are more flexible, more fluid and less likely to become damaged.
Better yet, this also increases ‘cell membrane permeability’.
In simple English, this means that neurotransmitters, nutrients and key signals will pass through the cell walls more easily, allowing for speedier transmissions and improved communication across synapses.
On top of all this, omega 3 fatty acid also fights inflammation.
Inflammation is actually a big deal in the brain, where pro-inflammatory cytokines can cause serious damage if left to their own devices.
Brain inflammation is probably responsible for brain fog, so this is a quick and effective brain upgrade.
Eggs contain all of the essential amino acids that humans need to thrive.
This means that it contains all the proteins that are used to build muscle, skin, bone and neurochemicals.
But what eggs also contain is choline.
Choline is a chemical precursor to acetylcholine, meaning that it is what the brain uses in order to synthesize that ingredient.
This is important for us because acetylcholine is the primary excitatory neurotransmitter in the brain alongside glutamate.
This means it is used in many important operations and particularly when it comes to memory!
Avocado is a healthy saturated fat, which is important because the brain is largely made from fat.
It’s also another source of omega 3 fatty acid.
But what is most exciting of all is that it contains lutein – a carotenoid that used to be known primarily for its eye-health benefits but which has since come to be seen as a powerful cognitive enhancer and energy booster!
