I. Summary
The basic memory mechanics exposes the power of concentration to improve memory. Concentrating can increase the amount of information encoded in the brain. Concentration enhances the basic memory mechanics by creating a healthy, vibrant and energetic brain. Combining basic memory mechanics and concentrating creates the perfect chemistry.

Secondly practice proven methods that work for you. Thirdly you can practice additional skills to increase encoding in the brain and one is concentration. Concentration can improve memory when your brain is healthy and fit. You should always practice the basic memory mechanics and brain encoding methods; then add concentration skills.
