Taking breaks often helps people to “clear their minds” after a long day. Now, a new study finds taking even longer breaks may actually help people to “strengthen their minds” so they can remember more. Researchers in Germany find that taking a longer break in between mental tasks helps the brain remember more about the activity they just completed.
People who have extreme reactions to sounds such as chewing or loud breathing may have a "supersensitised" brain connection, according to a study. Misophonia can trigger intense physical or emotional reactions that others might see as over the top.
