Do you prefer to take notes by hand or by typing them into your laptop or tablet? You might wonder if the question really matters; after all, the important thing is just to get down the information, right?

Researchers have found that when you write notes by hand, as opposed to typing, it triggers the connection between the hand and the brain, resulting in more than just notes to look at later. Writing down information will actually help you retain it, since your brain will connect with what you’re writing as you go.

Read on to learn more about the connection between the hand and the brain. And if you don’t like to write by hand, you’ll find some helpful tips for efficient handwriting strategies, too.
