U.S. memory champion explains his techniques

14 Jul

In May, I had the opportunity to see U.S. memory champion, Nelson Dellis, perform at the Association for Psychological Science meeting. Here is a podcast where Dellis is interviewed by Jeff Rubin.

Rubin does a good job and Dellis gives a clear explanation of mnemonic techniques. These techniques are useful for a variety of real world memory tasks such as remembering numbers and passwords. But, it should be noted, there are other newer methods, such as the use of spaced repetition software, that are more flexible and can handle a greater range of material.
