Scientists suggest the ability to find where one left their car keys or put down their wallet may be significantly increased by saying the objects name out loud, the Daily Telegraph reported.
In some instances the technique of talking out loud helped a visual search to such an extent that seemingly invisible objects suddenly became visible.
The research was published in the Journal of Experimental Psychology.
Researchers claimed that speech could alter ongoing cognitive processing in nontrivial ways -- effectively allowing us to concentrate better.
