The Science of Memory: Top 10 Proven Techniques to Remember More and Learn Faster

The Science of Memory

  1. Encoding - the stage when the brain consciously acknowledges information based on our senses. When we attach meaning or factual knowledge to any of this sensory input, that's called semantic encoding which makes us retain memories longer.
  2. Storage - it is when information is stored in different areas of the brain, thanks to the neurons that connect every time we perceive information.
  3. Recall - when our brain "replays" or revisits our memory even though it is not as exact as the first one.

Connect & Link (The Link Method)

This memorization technique involves creating associations between items in a list and assigning images to each connection to help you memorize better. 

For instance, your account...

Make a Story (The Story Method)

This approach is really similar to the Link Method. While you create a bunch of different images between each two items using the Link Method, you combine everything into one big picture with the Story Method. This technique helps you memorize the sequence of the images and hence the order of the items. 

Associate Objects with Familiar Locations (The Loci Method)
You can use this memorization method by associating terms or list items with familiar locations. 

Make these images as absurd, comical, sensory (e.g. can incorporate sounds, smells, tastes), and vivid as possible for best results. This is a centuries-old method started by ancient Romans and is still used today by many World Memory Champions.
