  1. 3:17 -> “sh, don’t talk it”s my video”

  2. Stop raiding my subscription list

  3. Our Social Study’s teacher told us that she did this while studying for her final exams, have been doing it since, but only for big exams

    • Did it help?

    • Santosh Kunnur It kinda did. I tried different things like just keynotes or whole sentences and stuff like equations. I Keynotes remember the keynotes better, but sometimes I had no this word without context in my brain.
      So it helps, but nobody should count on it

  4. “tested on 12 people” and “significant results” don’t go together

  5. So is it mean recorded English sound could be an enhancer for language learning while we sleep?

  7. What would we do without TED? This is just amazing. The amount I learn from TED is just incomparable.

  8. But I’m a college student, I don’t know what sleep is.

  9. Everything I learned about memory I learned at Semiaquatic Mammal University. (At the Hippo Campus.)

  10. Please for the love of humanity cut the intro. You don’t need to introduce every 5 minute video like it’s the new Planet Earth.

  11. what’s sleep – from an IB student

    Didn’t know Link from Good Mythical Morning was making TED Series.

  18. Forgetting peoples’ names doesn’t bother me at all. I just say: “Sorry I’ve totally forgotten your name, what is it again? Thanks, sorry, I’m great with faces but pretty bad with names.” It works every time, no one has ever gotten upset at me for it, because we’ve all had this experience. Chill and be confident, people.

  19. I never knew Ed Helms twin brother was a neuroscientist.
