Brain Mnemonics to Help You Remember Things

Why I chose this topic:

Brain mnemonics are fascinating tools that can greatly improve your life. Take a moment to remember everything you have to remember. With all the homework assignments, family obligations such as birthdays, places you put certain things, and test material you studied there is a lot to remember in life! I want to research this topic because in doing so I will learn tools to improve not only mine but other people's memory that hopefully will have a lasting impact.

Interesting Examples of Mnemonics

David Farrow memorized 59 full packs of playing cards totaling 3068 individual cards. Johannes Mallow was able to memorize 132 historic dates in only 5 minutes.
