Chocolate vs Memory 2 Introduction Literature and studies in history found that utilization of a cocoa savor rich flavanols - a key element of dark chocolate - helps blood stream to key areas of the brain for a few hours, which could enhance memory and help people do well on tests if consumed right before a test. This research paper will attempt to enhance the knowledge to readers about the cause and effect of chocolate, and if the studies prove that chocolate is, in fact, our “Memory Savior”! Expanded blood stream to these regions of the mind might build execution in particular tasks and help general readiness over a brief period. The study likewise recommends that the cocoa flavanols found in chocolate could be helpful in upgrading mind capacity for individuals battling exhaustion, lack of sleep, and even the impacts of maturing. (Owen, L. 2013) For the study, members will be isolated into 4 gatherings of 50; the primary gathering will consume a little measure of cocoa flavonol refreshment while the second gathering will consume a moderate measure of the same drink. The third gathering will consume the most amount of the same drink. The fourth gathering or group will not have had any chocolate in the last 24 hours. This study will also be taped through audio and video not seen by the participants. The groups will also be selected by using “experimental research” which “involves the random selection of participants and also their random assignment to groups. The other design will be a “quasi-experimental” design: a design where one of the IVs is assigned but another cannot be— gender is not up to the researcher” (Tanner, D. 2011).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
