    Parlor Trick That Boosts Brainpower

    Next time you forget where you parked, here's a little idea that could get you back behind the wheel pronto: Pinch your right nostril shut. Sounds strange, but research shows that pinching the right one shut and breathing through the left one boosts spatial memory -- that part of your brain that helps with memory and navigation.

    Pick a Side
    It's a right brain/left brain thing. In general, you use the left side of your brain to balance your checkbook, carry on conversations, and solve problems that require linear reasoning. The right side? It helps you paint like Picasso and recognize faces, and it controls spatial abilities. And the right side is also in charge of the left side of your body. But here's the twist: The left side of your body controls the right side of your brain, and vice versa. So when you breathe through the left nostril, it gives the right side of your brain a boost! It's neat cocktail-party trivia.
