HAIRMAX OFFERS HAIR LOSS SUFFERERS THE FASTEST LOW-LEVEL LASER TREATMENT ON THE MARKET

How is it that you can have too much hair on some places of your body while not enough on others? Seems a little unfair not to mention frustrating, right? After trying out a low-level light therapy helmet with success to combat my own hair loss, which I will chalk up to stress, I decided to go further down the rabbit hole and try out a different light-based device—the Hairmax LaserBand 82, an FDA cleared device that delivers low-level laser therapy to slow hair loss while also stimulating new hair growth. What drew me to this device was unlike my other one the Hairmax device did not require an electrical outlet during use and the treatment time was 90 seconds every other day versus 25 minutes every other day.

PAST MEMORY CUES HELP PEOPLE JUGGLE PIECES OF INFORMATION

Many everyday tasks require people to represent and combine information from multiple sources. For example, when a person checks the rearview mirror while driving it is important that they maintain information about how far they are from the car in front of them. This information is stored in working memory, a limited-capacity system that allows humans to represent relevant information over short intervals. Information stored in working memory can be assigned different levels of importance. For instance, heavy traffic requires a person to maintain accurate representations of how far they are from other cars on the road. In addition, the relative importance of different sources of information might change at a moment’s notice, like if a car suddenly cuts a person off or if they hear a horn.
