New knowledge is better learned in an unfamiliar place

A study carried out at the University of Leuven, Belgium, revealed that learning in a new place contributes to better information uptake. When we get into unfamiliar conditions, the brain activates dopamine synthesis - this neurotransmitter plays a crucial role in the formation of associative memory and stimulates the reward system. All this improves the brain's ability to assimilate and store information. 

- It may seem that in a new place a person will be more distracted, the authors comment on the research results. - However, studying how the brain functions in unfamiliar conditions shows that this is not the case. 

The experts emphasize that a new place may be considered a cafe, park bench or embankment, etc., and its attractiveness has no impact on effectiveness. 

Visiting the location again reduces the effectiveness of the training. Therefore, in search of inspiration, stimulate memory work so important to overcome the routine and constantly discover new places.
