London: According to a latest study researchers have found that new mothers have a better memory – the findings that counter the belief that women experience a decline in memory and cognitive function after they have children.Suddenly becoming forgetful has long been seen as part and parcel of becoming a mother.But scientists say so-called ‘baby brain’ may be a myth and, in fact, having a child may actually improve a woman’s memory.In a series of experiments, new mothers scored better on tests of visuospatial memory – the ability to perceive and remember information about their surroundings – compared with women who didn’t have children. “You don’t have to feel that because you have kids, your memory isn’t the same,” a newspaper quoted Melissa Santiago from Carlos Albizu University in Miami as saying while presented her findings to a meeting of the American Psychological Association.
