Leading Learning Strategies Website, Smart-kit, Hosts Study Tip Contest to Help Students Learn and Leverage Best Study Practices

Thursday, February 22nd, 2007

Smartkit contest aims to compile new, healthy ways for students to capitalize on study sessions learning more in less time.

Boynton Beach, FL — February 22, 2007 — —, a leading website dedicated to providing studying techniques, is hosting a contest to create a compilation of study tips from its readers and help others learn how to study smarter, not harder.

“Almost all students have been forced to pull an all-nighter,” said Dr. R.L. Kaplan, Board Certified Neurologist and author of “But few realize the negative effects sleep deprivation can have on brain function the following day, decreasing the likelihood of performing well on tests.”

According to the journal, Occupational & Environmental Medicine, after 19+ hours without sleep, performance on cognitive tests reached levels equivalent to those associated with a BAC (blood alcohol concentration) of 0.1 percent. In the majority of states, a BAC of 0.08 percent is grounds for a DUI. This means that students pulling an all-nighter don’t have enough brain function to legally drive a car.

“It is important that students learn more effective and healthy study habits,” said Kaplan. “That is the goal of this contest, to educate students on a variety of ways to increase information learned while decreasing study time.”

Kaplan, explains that the work force does not have to rely on artificial stimulants such as coffee to maintain peak performance levels.Dr. R.L. Kaplan provides the following advice on how to maintain energy and mental acuity in the Smartkit: Student Guidebook:Eating Brain Food — Brain structure and function is markedly affected by what you eat. Neuroscientific studies indicate meals that follow a carbohydrate to protein ration of 1:1 allow for maximal producivity and mental efficiency. Feed your brain vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals and stimulate your brain instead of merely sustaining it. A light meal that starts with a variety of fresh fruit, followed by nuts and seeds coupled with vegetable juice can offer the mental energy and clarity you need to make through a busy and stressful day.Increase the neurochemicals of concentration — During a mid-day break, engage in aerobic exercise by taking the stairs instead of the elevator. Even a short burst of exercise increases brain catecholamine levels which in turn boost ability to concentrate and focus. These are the same brain chemicals that Ritalin-like stimulants work on.Maintain Peak Mental Performance by recharging your brain — The scientific benefits of napping are mounting. Numerous studies have shown a mere 15 minute nap after lunch boosts mental performance, increases physiological and subjective alertness, and improves mood — regardless of how much sleep you had the night before.”Mental fatigue is common among almost all workers and across all job types,” said Dr. R.L. Kaplan. “The important thing to remember is that the easiest tweaks of your daily routine can provide huge benefits in mental sharpness and overall energy.”Learn more about improving mental acuity by reading the hundreds of tips on the Smartkit website.About SmartkitSmartKit is an eBook written by Board Certified neurologist Dr. R.L.
