The Returning Method

To ensure more secure, long-term storage of connections in the brain, figurative codes must not be connected with each other.

The returning method is a combination of the “Chain” and the “Singling out image parts” methods and makes it possible to memorize figurative codes separately.

The returning method is used for the long-term memorization of difficult textual extracts which contain many often-repeated figurative codes (two- and three-digit numbers, first names, last names, and so on).

The images which represent precise data are memorized using the “Chain” technique: as soon as a figurative code is encountered, it is connected not with the previous image, but with its part.

When figurative codes are isolated images, connection is continued using the “Chain” method.


The use of this method will be examined in more detail during the analysis of the factographical information memorization technique.
