Name memory eye trick

Just read this online:

Remember names.

The trick: Exercise your eyes.

Before you walk into your next cocktail party, move your eyes back and forth horizontally for 30 seconds. Yeah, you might look weird, but British researchers say the exercise can help you retain words (including names) you’re about to hear. The horizontal movement makes the brain’s hemispheres interact, and that’s important in memory retrieval, the experts say.

  1. But what happens when alcohol is involved?

    If you do this exercise while sober and upon arriving to the party but then imbibe heavily does that erase all previous retention?
