Where humans excel is in communication through speech—using rapid, complex systems of sounds and silence to transfer information at high speed in social environments. Memory processes in vivo for humans on the scale of individual neurons demonstrate how complex information in brief, rapid communications can be encoded in LTM.
A study of patients with severe epilepsy showed specific memory formation in single neurons, and was able to demonstrate aspects of memory mechanisms in free recall. Three sessions of 16 five-seconds-long memorable video clips were shown to patients. Subsequently, internally generated reactivation of single neurons involved in memory acquisition of a clip occurred during free recall of that clip, demonstrating localization of some aspects of memory in specific neurons Gelbard-Sagiv et al. Later studies of patients shown a wide range of images found different groups of neurons were encoding both abstract and basic properties of the images.
This simultaneous representation may serve to bind separate aspects of visual objects into a coherent percept. More widely, this suggests memory processes can encode in a way that structures complex information Steinmetz et al. This study reports on such a method derived directly from the research demonstrating LTM mechanisms of DNA synthesis at an intracellular level can be triggered using three stimuli spaced by two 10 min periods without stimulation Frey and Morris, ; Menzel et al. This study reports on the development of Spaced Learning and a series of experiments using Spaced Learning carried out over a five-year period.
If time patterns in education are broadly optimal, the much shorter time patterns in Spaced Learning would lead to little learning and poor test results.
The study was designed to give a preliminary answer to determine which hypothesis is supported. Materials and Methods The development of Spaced Learning over the last seven years has been in two stages: a formative stage creating the method and preliminary trials, and a second stage focused formal experiments and high-stakes testing.
Teachers in the research team approached the task by addressing whether such a technique could be created, how it could be deployed effectively, whether learning did occur and, if so, would it do so in different contexts. This training focused on the physical basis of LTM, and the reasons the time pattern used was chosen.
This led to exploring rapid communication in speech, text and media. Analogies and case studies proved useful in this process. Very rapid communication as a strategy in Spaced Learning, though evident in language, reading and media acquisition in children, was less intuitive.
The fact that the high-stakes test in Biology required students to answer 36 questions in 30 min, where questions often had 50 words or more, or the time scales of the Scholastic Aptitude Tests used for university admissions were more powerful based on a principle of learning matching testing.
The contrast with their normal teaching was considerable in a number of areas. Repeating the same content three times in the same session, albeit with minor changes, was highly unusual but manageable. The lead neuroscientist recommended the two 10 min spaces were distractor activities, ideally physical activities to minimize possible interference in the synaptic tagging and capture processes putatively occurring.
This was completely new for all the teachers, who developed a wide range of options such as basketball practice, juggling, and modeling with clay-like materials some options trialled proved impractical, such as aerobic exercise.
Consistently given instruction at the speed of rapid communication was demanding, and teachers delivered Spaced Learning in pairs on occasion. The speed of instruction sessions required careful planning and resources constructed specifically for Spaced Learning. This meant instruction elements were always 20 min or less.
Spaced Learning as used in study was therefore three intensive instruction elements of the same content with minor variations each lasting 20 min or less stimuli , spaced by two distractor activities of 10 min spaces without the stimuli.
Preliminary implementation was carried out using Spaced Learning to supplement standard teaching in a variety of contexts: before any teaching overviews of new topics for example or after all teaching replacing course reviews. Reflection on implementation led to a host of refinements to the method and associated resources, and was followed by a range of more formal trials.
The preliminary data indicated Spaced Learning led to learning; intense instruction elements were not a barrier to understanding, and testing days, weeks and months later after a Spaced Learning session indicated long-term memories had been encoded.
Teachers reacted differently to Spaced Learning though some responses were common to many teachers. Many found Spaced Learning fun, different, and felt it was a positive learning experience for both teachers and learners.

Negative responses included rejecting the underlying neuroscience out of hand, a concern about greater workload, and a fear of school inspectors judging Spaced Learning sessions harshly because they did not match recommended teaching methods.
Students on the other hand were very positive, asserting Spaced Learning helped them learn rapidly. Perhaps the most illuminating accounts of the nature of Spaced Learning come from students, as this first hand description illustrates: The lessons are very compressed. For example, the review of my whole Biology unit was completed in about 12 min.
The nervous system, diet deficiencies, hormones and the menstrual cycle, drugs, and defence from pathogens all whiz by on slides shown at the dizzying rate of 7—8 per min. During the min breaks we get physical, rather than mental, activities like basketball dribbling and teamwork games.
So what happens inside your head during Spaced Learning that is different from what happens during a traditional lesson or review session? I can only answer for myself. I love rock climbing. For me, Spaced Learning is a bit like my climbing. It just seems as if I am seeing a movie in my mind that I have already seen before, and my understanding of the information presented becomes more precise—clearer—when I see it again.
In the end, I am left with a movie in my head of the lesson, just like my memory of a climb.
My first experience of Spaced Learning came in March when my class re-took our science exams from November We only had a one hour Spaced Learning review session which had four months of work condensed into it from the summer before.
Most of us did better on the exams after an hour of Spaced Learning review, even though we did no studying at all. It was amazing.
These student accounts are drawn from a digital guide to Spaced Learning created for a national programme of innovative approaches in schools, Learning Futures. The publication includes video of a complete Spaced Learning session Barratt, ; Bradley and Patton, After this preliminary development stage, the research group established experiments to determine the impact of Spaced Learning as measured in the multiple choice tests for Biology in the English National Curriculum Science course.
The choice of these high-stakes tests as a measure was taken as they were objective and could be linked to independent assessments of academic potential by the University of Durham CEM Center.
Controlling for prior learning and validity was rigorous, and comprehensively reviewed by government bodies.
The importance of the results in these high-stakes tests for students and schools was also a factor. Experimental groups with larger control groups were used throughout for organizational reasons and to ensure the quality of Spaced Learning was reasonably high, given the method was new to all teachers.
All students taking part in the study, except those drawn from a national cohort in Condition 3, had been pre-tested for academic potential, science achievement in national and yearly tests, and in tests similar to those used in the study. In all Conditions control and experimental subjects were matched using data adjusted for variables including prior attainment.
There were no significant differences between control and experimental groups on these measures in any condition as students taking part had potential achievement not significantly different from students nationally. Spaced Learning was used with experimental groups in three conditions to deliver the Biology courses in the English National Curriculum. In Conditions 1 and 2 students took the second Biology course either through traditional teaching over four months controls or only a single Spaced Learning session of 60 min instructional time experimentals.
In condition 3 students took the first Biology course for four months with a single Spaced Learning session of 60 min replacing the end of course review session, and were tested. In all conditions the Spaced Learning session covered the whole course.

Condition 1 was constructed in part to restrict any learning other than through Spaced Learning, and ensuring STM was minimized or eliminated by having five days between the Spaced Learning session and the test. In the following academic year, control groups studied both Biology courses for four months each, and were tested after each course.
In Condition 2 students in the experimental condition had no instruction other than through Spaced Learning as in Condition 1. In Condition 2, the normal educational context was preserved as far as reasonably possible with all students with their own group and teacher, and having completed the first Biology course before taking the second Biology course.
Then, for the second Biology course, the experimental groups experienced the Spaced Learning session and were tested. Controls were taught over four months and were tested. Condition 3 was designed to test any impact of Spaced Learning after normal teaching of a course, remove the novelty of Spaced Learning without teaching, and enable more direct comparisons with another subject Physics and students in other schools.
The normal educational context was preserved as far as possible, and the Biology course taught for four months and then the students were tested. The Physics course was taught for eight months and the students were tested as a longer period of instruction for this course was considered necessary, an approach followed in many other schools.
At the end of the Physics course all students had an intensive one hour review of all course content days before the examination, as is common practice in English schools. In contrast, at the end of the Biology course, this intensive review was replaced by a single Spaced Learning session of the same duration. This limited the impact on test scores of the circadian rhythm shift towards eveningness types and its effects on learning during adolescence Lockley and Foster, As this shift towards eveningness increases during puberty it would have an increased impact the older the students Roenneberg et al.
Repeated measures data also made it possible to compare answers to questions by experimental subjects and subjects in other schools in both Biology and Physics tests. At that time, no other school in England used Spaced Learning. This comparison was used to assess whether any learning had occurred.
This effect is duplicated in controls, leading to the unsurprising conclusion that teaching for four months had a positive impact on outcomes. The test data allowed a comparison of control group scores after four months teaching and experimental group scores after an hour of Spaced Learning. In Condition 1 there were a number of restrictions intended to limit the impact of prior learning in experimental groups.
These groups were in an earlier academic year, tested nine months earlier than controls, and had not studied the first Biology course.

The five day gap between learning through Spaced Learning and the test in effect eliminated STM accounting for test scores. High-stakes test scores for teaching four months and spaced learning one hour.
In Condition 2 the context for learning was similar to the normal teaching context in academic year, prior study of the first Biology course, and teacher continuity. Test score percentage increase per hour of instruction. In both conditions one hour of instruction through Spaced Learning had a significantly greater impact than many hours of teaching. A measure of the impact on learning in relation to instructional time was calculated for all groups to quantify the impact difference: a test score percentage gain per hour of instruction.
In both Conditions 1 and 2, Spaced Learning groups learned significantly faster as measured by the high-stakes test.
Finally, there were no significant differences between groups of individuals within these experimental groups by sex, age, or ability after taking into account predicted and achieved high-stakes test scores. Significant differences in individual questions after Spaced Learning were found in questions in a variety of question formats and across different content areas. Test percentage correct answers: Spaced Learning vs course review.
Regression analysis of experimental subject scores in Physics and Biology adjusted for ability produced a similar level of significance.
The results also indicate long-term memories of an academic course can be created rapidly through Spaced Learning. Students appeared to adjust to Spaced Learning effectively whether or not they were with their own teacher, group, or learning in an earlier academic year. Although there is substantial evidence that many communication systems in humans and other species operate at a very fast speed, with many elements operating in milliseconds, this does not, in itself, explain the impact of high speed Spaced Learning instruction on test scores.
The data suggest Spaced Learning is more efficient in comparison to standard teaching. I want colored pencils. Surveying the parking lot, I muttered under my breath about the place being a mad house.
As Nat and I entered the store, I looked around and decided that yes, this was a mad house. I pointed off to the right side of the store and told Nat to pick out the supplies he wanted while I started finding clothes. He grumpily nodded and walked over in that direction. Sighing to myself I grabbed a cart and headed over to the boys clothing section. I propped my purse up in the infant seat area of the cart and started rummaging through racks looking for clothing in Nathan's size.
I had just triumphantly pulled a pair of pants in the right size off of the rack when he returned. Glancing at the pile of school supplies thrown haphazardly into the cart, I spotted something else. If you get good marks first quarter we'll come back and get it then.
Shaking my head sadly, I returned my attention back to the clothing racks. If this was what being a single parent consisted of, I wanted none of it. I heard Nat return, his old sneakers squeaking against the polished floor. Glancing over, I saw him digging around in my purse. He popped a piece in his mouth and came over to where I was standing with my arms loaded with clothes. Together we picked out a few new shirts, he even laughed at one of the goofy ones I let him pick out.
Laughter, it had been a while since I'd heard him laugh. Maybe we would make it after all, just him and me.

Nat behaved himself wonderfully as I had him try on all of the new clothes, not even complaining about me coming into the dressing room with him. Once I was satisfied that all of the clothes fit him well, we went over to the shoe department and picked out a new pair of sneakers for him.
We finally had everything and headed over to the checkout. The pale teen with the obviously dyed black hair behind the counter looked bored as she quickly scanned the items and dumped them unceremoniously into a bag. The cashier finished bagging all of our downloads and totaled the sale.
I may carry a purse, but it's so much safer to keep your wallet on your person at all times. I handed her the credit card and prayed it wasn't over the limit.
To my joy it wasn't. As she handed me my receipt, I glanced at her name tag. The security guard gave me a grim smile and nodded towards the purse. I had no idea what was going on, still desperately trying to make sense of it, but handed him the purse anyway. I knew that I hadn't put anything in there.
My heart nearly dropped to the floor when I saw him pull out the video game that Nat had tried slipping in with his supplies.The page you are attempting to access contains content that is not intended for underage readers. The security guard took his time slowly rifling through my purse and our shopping bags, making sure that only items downloadd where in them. Sally has always respected and liked Emilio, probably more than she should, believing him to be the best man she has ever known.

Will she and Mammy kill each other living back under the same roof? The guard cleared his throat and said, "Ma'am I'm going to have to completely search your belongings and bags to make sure nothing more has been taken. I sighed to myself. Patients have been disappearing from the hospital, and Erin finds a clue regarding their blood.
