A new study suggests that closing one’s eyes actually does help an individual recall things in more accurate detail.
According to research findings published in the journal Legal and Criminological Psychology, subjects who participated in a recent study at the U.K.’s University of Surrey had more accurate recollections of visual and audio memories when they closed their eyes during testing.
The survey also found that individuals who had better rapport with their interviewers scored higher on tests, reports the BBC.
Closing one’s eyes will “help people visualize the details of the event they are trying to remember,” lead researcher Robert Nash told the BBC. He added that it could “help focus on audio information, too.”
