Subj:     Mnemonics Definition
          From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
 Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mnemonic

 A mnemonic, or mnemonic device, is any learning technique
 that aids information retention. Mnemonics aim to translate
 information into a form that the brain can retain better
 than its original form. Even the process of merely learning
 this conversion might already aid in the transfer of
 information to long-term memory. Commonly encountered
 mnemonics are often used for lists and in auditory form,
 such as short poems, acronyms, or memorable phrases, but
 mnemonics can also be used for other types of information
 and in visual or kinesthetic forms. Their use is based on
 the observation that the human mind more easily remembers
 spatial, personal, surprising, physical, sexual, humorous,
 or otherwise 'relatable' information, rather than more
 abstract or impersonal forms of information.
