Mnemotechnics and CWM
It's kind of cheating - I'm using
to achieve best score in this exercise.
Me too, memory palace allowed me to reach the 15th level, while I was stuck at the fifth level. I don't think it's cheating; it just trains our mind to improve it's memory palace technique, which is useful in everyday live.
Hey, I'm not a mnemonist (yet :) but have an idea of how the
technique works. I understand how you can use it with the Verbal CWM, but don't get how you can apply it to the Spatial. How do you associate the positions in the grid with ... anything? :)
There is powerful mnemotechnic to remebering any kind of graphical material. I use it here. Each position on the grid is one word, easy to imagine. For example position A1 - Polish word "akt" (mean 'nude' in English, I imagine a naked statue). Putting it in memory palace in order is very easy. B1 - "but" (shoe in English) etc. Derren Brown, one of the best mnemonist and ilusionist, use similar method to remember the whole map of London, look: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UX4Cm8sFCL4
Ah, now it is clear, thanks.
Well, it's not cheating, as not forbidden by the rules and cannot be validated anyway. But there is an irrelevance of the top results of those, who use mnemotechics with those who don't. For the Spatial task the mnemotechnics may be prevented (I beleive) by displaying the memorizing part by flashing the randomly positioned blocks on the screen (like in the Corsi exercise). For the Verbal part I'm afraid nothing can be done. If the mnemotechnics gets more popular on the site, I may create a special section devoted to it, with the special exercises for every technique.
It would be nice.
I don't use memory palace technique but I only chunk the data into 4 at the time and also visualize them in order while making symmetry decisions which can usually mess up my decision making, so I have been starting to chunk my visualization as well (chunking the chunking, if that makes sense)

Thank You for Your spam! Their is no reliable evidence, that huperzine improve cognitive performance, however some poor proofs suggest, it may improve Alzheimer disease.
