  1. Interesting presentation on stories. Another advantage of stories is that they are easy to remember. When you have information that fits together, as in a story, I think you can actually remember more than with isolated pieces of information. Like songs ( which also help memory), stories provide a structure to the information, making it easier to recall in one piece.
