This doodling helped me pay attention to the presentation better.
Oh I love those doodle videos! I wonder if there are any more good one-minute physics ones...
"In a study published in 2009 in the journal Applied Cognitive Psychology, researcher Jackie Andrade played a tedious voicemail to a group of volunteers. Some were asked to doodle, while others simply listened to the message. Turns out the doodlers remembered 29 percent more details than the non-doodling group.
"Doodling has been grossly under-studied," said professor Jesse Prinz. "It is one of the most neglected day-to-day activities."
Doodling is worth studying because it stimulates memory.
Keep an eye out for more studies, please!
