It Organizes The Brain’s “Memory Lines” More Efficiently
Connectivity in the brain is organized along a default pattern that researchers know as the default mode network or DMN. The DMN connects different parts of the brain, such as the memory center, to other regions. It is involved in processes that range from moral reasoning, how we imagine the future, empathy, and the sense of self.
The symmetry between the brain hemispheres along the DMN helps with memory retention and even reduces aging. And MRI studies have shown that green tea helps to organize the memory lines within the DMN more efficiently so that overall brain function is improved. In other words, the brains of people who drink green tea are more efficient and less aged.
