Your Brain on Peppermint: Peppermints and Pencils in the Library!

peppermintsAccording to study published in 2008 in the International Journal of Neuroscience, “participants exposed to peppermint oil experienced enhanced memory and processing speeds…[and peppermint] also increased their alertness while helping them maintain a sense of calm.”

We figured if it was published in the Journal of Neuroscience then it must be true. So, beginning Monday, December 12th through Saturday, December 17th (or until we run out of peppermints and pencils!), the Reynolds Libraries will be hosting our popular Peppermints and Pencils  event. Come in anytime during our extended hours to pick up a snazzy Reynolds pencil and some peppermints to help you study for your exams.
