Drawing is better than writing for memory retention -- ScienceDaily
"Older adults who take up drawing could enhance their memory, according to a new study.
"Researchers from the University of Waterloo found that even if people weren't good at it, drawing, as a method to help retain new information, was better than re-writing notes, visualization exercises or passively looking at images.

"'We found that drawing enhanced memory in older adults more than other known study techniques,' said Melissa Meade, PhD candidate in cognitive neuroscience at Waterloo. 'We're really encouraged by these results and are looking into ways that it can be used to help people with dementia, who experience rapid declines in memory and language function.'"
