Have you ever wondered what helps us to remember past incidents, people, places etc.?

When we see, hear or read something; certain parameters are attached to each fragment of information and then stored in memory (brain). Later, these parameters help us to retrieve information from memory. We call this process as memorization. How long one can memorize some stored information depends on how well the person continues close association with parameters attached to the information.

Primary Memorization Parameters:

  • Time
  • Place
  • Subject
  • Characters
  • Incident
  • Emotion
  • Scene
  • Context
  • Environment
  • Surroundings

Secondary Memorization Parameters:

  • Similarity or Dissimilarity (Linking other incidents)
  • Seen or Unseen
  • Historical or Scientific or Geographical
  • Reality or Imagination
