"The author's main objective is in the evaluation of the usefulness of a generation that aims in improving one's own learning and memory skills. The study research conducted by the authors indicated that the generation effect in improving learning within neurologically impaired individuals honed on the synergy of the brain due to the injury."

Try and identify the main thesis of in the first few sections or pages to fully understanding and writing up a review. Then, the goal is to expand further into the research study to incorporate research findings accordingly to bringing depth of understanding to authors purpose.

Sample 2:
