Course Description

If you are keen on developing your memory and learning, this course is for  you.

Most of us don’t know how our memory work, let alone how to optimize it. We don’t know how to help our children to stimulate their memory, we fail at helping our parents to stay young at heart and in their brain. And ourselves, we’re just too busy to realize we could be way more effective...

The purpose of this course is to offer an overview of our memory throughout our different periods of life. 

We are going to explore its evolution during the course of a life time. Each lecture will include exercises to improve our memory, advice to help other people and finally also explanations to allow us to better understand how our memory works.

The Science behind the course...

Since antiquity, philosophers and orators try to understand the functioning of memory. They had already developed techniques that we still use successfully today.
In the 19th century, Ebbinghaus began scientifically studying memory and discovered the laws of how we forget and William James was the first to propose to split the memory into several distinct functions.

Today, we distinguish dozens of specific types of memories. In this course, we will focus on the main 3 memory systems, which are: The Sensory memory , the short-term memory ( or working memory) and the long-term memory

This course has the ambition to be extremely complete. We'll cover everyone and everything:
From babies and toddlers, over teenagers, to adults and old age.
From remembering names and numbers, over techniques to give presentations, to memory hacks
From theories and studies, over practical exercises and tasks you will be asked to perform

My personal experience

You have to know that as a student, studying for me looked more like a battlefield. It was something I was forced to do. An obligation. Needless to say I didn’t fare well. Through my journey into the brain, I started to understand what I was doing wrong. Long story short: pretty much everything. I remember how, in the beginning of my career, I was constantly forgetting the names of my clients, the details of the projects I was working on. I was constantly getting into trouble with my boss because of it.  

Today, I can say, without the shadow of a doubt, that my brain and my memory have never worked better. And I want to share all my insights with you.

  • Understand the different types of memory - and gain insight in how we remember

  • Follow the different laws and guidelines - and find harmony with your brain

  • Apply a whole range of strategies - and improve your memory

  • Help others - and regardless of their age, help them maintain and/or develop their memory and learning skills

  • And So Much More... such as babies, language, infantile amnesia, working memory, screens, drugs, the amygdala and hypothalamus, remembering names, numbers, songs, and so on ... 


Course overview

The first part of this course is dedicated to a few basic concepts: the different types of memory and the process of learning. These first lectures will be used to have a common basis and the same vocabulary.

From there onward, the course is divided into four parts: childhood, adolescence, adulthood, and old age.

Part 1: Childhood and memory

Children are little concerned with memory. Yet from the youngest age their brain operates at full speed. It is thanks to memory that a child learns to speak, to move, to act in the world that surrounds him. In this part we will explore several themes:

  • How does a childs’ memory function,

  • Why do we forget our first memories,

  • How to foster the memory of a child in school and in life,

  • Discover and even create some memory games yourself.

Part 2: The discovery of the world, memory of adolescents

With puberty, a series of changes appear, not only in the body, but also in the brain. These changes are also reflected at memory level. Between 10 and 14 years old, the memory of the child evolves into a new version which foreshadows that of the adult. A teenager discovers gradually the process of memory that will fully flourish a few years later. To illustrate this transformation, we will explore the following topics:

  • The discovery of the power of memory and its laws, 

  • How to anchor a memory in the long term, 

  • How to find back, what was stored up there

  • The effects of television and drugs on memory.

Part 3: At cruise speed, the adult.

In this part, we will explore a series of tips and tricks to remember in a more effective manner. It is here that we will dive deep into the methods of storage. Diving deep, also means to better understand the biology of memory which goes along with it. We will be exploring the following topics:

  •  The biology of memory,

  • How to remember as an adult,

  • The hygiene of memory,

  • Different Tips and methods for memorizing a list, a story, a number or an anniversary…

Part 4: The Autumn of memory

We often associate old age with the loss of memory. In reality, things are more nuanced than that. There are more fears and myths than a real degradation of memory, provided, however, that we respect certain rules. That is what we are going to explore in this part.

  • The decline of the memory, so what is it about?

  • How to keep an active memory.


Throughout this course, there are tons of exercises, practical tips and tricks, as well as strategies and advice to strengthen your memory. Dive in deep right now and take control of your memory and learning skills.

    About the Expert

    Gregory Caremans

    Gregory Caremans

    Bio I'm a psychologist with a Master in communication, specialized in the Neurocognitive and Behavioral Approach. I'm the former Director of the Institute of Neurocognitivism in Brussels (Belgium). Today, I've specialized in writing and producing high quality brain-related content. I have my own blog and create online courses. A lot of people who follow my blog or enroll in my courses are quite curious about this NBA-thing, theNeurocognitive and Behavioral Approach. When you google it, you hardly find information on it. The reason for this is simple: The NBA has its origins in France, and is called ANC, l'approche Neurocognitive et Comportementale. Now when you google that, you'll find loads of information, unfortunately, the vast majority of it is in french… So that's where I come in. I have been the Director of the Institute of Neurocognitivism, which task is to spread the NBA, for several years. I worked directly with the founders of the NBA, Dr. Jacques Fradin and his colleagues, and became an expert in his approach. in 2014 I created my Brain Academy and took the decision to take the NBA one step further by elevating it's reach from a regional scope to a worldwide reach, by translating the work of Jacques Fradin into English, and make it accessible to everyone. With my team, we decided to translate the NBA into every day, real life applications: How to use the NBA to raise children, to become a better manager, to deal with stress, and so on… We've added new perspectives and insights from brilliant minds such as Daniel Kahneman, David Brooks, Dan Ariely, Antonio Damasio, Steven Pinker, and many more My blog and these courses were born out of a frustration, that regardless of the time and effort me and my team would put into coaching and training people, we would only reach so many people. It's great to have a vision to change the world, but if you don't have the means to activate it, your vision is no more than a fantasy… By the end of 2014, the first course got online. Since then, over 30.000 people have joined us already. Still, personally, I won't rest before reaching at least 100.000, and then one million, and more. And there's a simple reason for that: Understanding how our brains work and their impact on our behavior has a major impact on how we see ourselves and others. It helps us be at peace with ourselves and be more tolerant towards others. In other words: it makes the world a better place to live in. So join us in this brain-revolution.
