Mnemosyne - she is the Ancient Greek goddess of memory, mother of muses. In its honour many of the concepts, concerning aspects of storing, are called as mnemonic. (mnemynicas).

Mnemonic - it is set of methods and the rules serving for improvement of productivity of memory which main principles are information streamlining, application of the associative approach and creation of fancies. When in the information there is a sense, it is remembered with ease. On the other hand, such information, as a movement direction, date or a phone number sometimes is required to remember. The mnemonic is used for storing of this type of data, and also for strengthening of the general ability to information deduction.

The Rhythm and a rhyme

The Bare forms of mnemonic are a rhythm and a rhyme. A rhythm - It is a natural principle of streamlining of the information, many people involuntarily apply it. They over and over again repeat data, adhering to the same rhythm or simultaneously selecting rhymes to them. Undoubtedly, the multiplication table or names of the rivers of your country is in a similar way learnt. Wonderfully the rhythm and a rhyme for storing have been used in oral cultural traditions of the countries, for that moment not possessing writing, for example in a homeric epopee. However it is necessary to pay attention that storing with use of a rhythm and a rhyme does not guarantee understanding of the information, its storing is provided only.

An information Regrouping


It - one of strategy which help to acquire the information with greater the ease, usually used at storing of phone numbers, licence plates of cars, etc. If there is a series of such numbers, as for example 10480342, for learning 8 numbers are necessary to remember it. However, if to divide them into steams 10 48 03 42, that it is possible to cut by half volume of the remembered information.

For example, that it is better to remember the name of 3 Greek architectural styles: Ionic, Doric and Corinthian, it is possible to form acronym IODOKO. Finally technicians of storing give sense of the information which did not possess earlier it, thereby facilitating storing process. Depending on a formation place mnemonic receptions can be divided into 2 kinds: external and internal.
