As college students in 2016, we are inundated with a myriad of infographics and articles brimming with study tips that promise to boost test scores and memory retention. Yet few of these articles cite any scientific studies, leading us to ask if there is any actual science behind their claims. Some tips such as eating a balanced diet, staying hydrated, and exercising regularly have been around for years and have become part of common knowledge. Others, however, are rather new and radical. Does meditation and prayer boost our brain function? Can it be possible that the best time of day to study is 4­6 am? In this presentation we will explore whether or not science supports these different tips including whether time of day and oxygen levels affect study effectiveness; whether diet, exercise, sleep, and hydration boost brain function; and if meditation and certain foods guarantee an A.
