Stress may help you learn better

NewsChannel 10

Being stressed out before an exam may actually help you remember the material better.

Researchers say this process is also why unpleasant memories stay with people longer than happy ones.

They add that extreme stress, on the other hand, makes learning near impossible because the hormones overload the brain.
