Certain scents can help improve memory and potentially deter dementia while you sleep.
The study found that the scents of rose, lavender, and vanilla can improve memory consolidation during sleep.
Memory consolidation is the process of transferring short-term memories into long-term memories.
The study also found that the scents of peppermint and cinnamon can increase alertness and attention.
The researchers suggest that these scents could be used in aromatherapy to help improve memory and cognitive function.
Further research is needed to determine the long-term effects of using these scents for memory improvement and dementia prevention.
