Although there is the popular belief that herbal remedies like Ginkgo biloba and Ginseng might enhance learning and memory in healthy adults, these effects are basically not supported by well-controlled research (Peressson, Bringlov, Nilsson, & Nyberg, 2004). In a typical study, a researcher obtains the sample of n=36 participants and has each person take the herbal supplements everyday for 90 days. At the end of the 90 days, each person takes the standardized memory test.
