Boost Working Memory Skills Through Dynamic Activities

Researchers at the University of North Florida discovered a way to improve working memory in children and adults.  Tracy and Ross Alloway co authored the study which found that dynamic activity like climbing a tree, walking on a narrow beam, navigating over, under and around objects and carrying awkwardly weighted objects increased working memory capacity by as much as 50%.  These type of activities required both proprioception and a route planning or locomotion component.  The researchers emphasized the importance of taking breaks in our day to do activities that “require us to consciously adapt our movements.”  For more information go to
