    Thanks for all of the helpful tips! I have my AP psych exam a little over a week from now. I struggle in remembering all of the brain parts. These are some clever ways to remember important brain parts.

    I have a A&P test on Wednesday for my finals & I would need a high 90 just to score a 74% average with 10 different diagrams over different things, I wished you had some videos of all the others like you did for the brain. Because at this point IÒ€ℒve lost hope and gain new debt for school

If you go to the top of the page and click on the little magnifying glass and then type in the word mnemonics you’ll be brought to all the episodes I’ve done in which I use mnemonics like those shown in this video. There’s lot of them. And don’t forget that you can buy the Brain Mnemonics app or eBook where you’ll get crazy mnemonic images for 20 more parts of the brain, parts of the neuron, neurotransmitters and ways to remember the different types of brain scans.

    I have an anatomy and physiology test on the brain tomorrow. I can always remember the locations of everything, but I can’t remember the names doing total recall. While you didn’t cover all the parts I need, you covered several of them and this will definitely help in the recall! Thank you so much! Wish there was someone who did this in A&P to cover more parts.

    Haha, thanks so much. I’m sure some people make jokes about your method but please don’t let it stop you. I am a kinesthetic learner so I learn by do-ing. This makes retaining information from lectures and demonstrations difficult. It doesn’t matter how much I study, I only seem to retain “interesting” facts. It is hard for me to find creative ways to turn my difficult science classes into something that is “worth” remembering. So thank you for putting the time into this, and please keep doing so!:)

    Adrian

    September 22, 2008

    This just saved me quite a bit of time. If you’re looking for something else to do mnemoics you might consider neurotransmitters. I dunno about most teachers but mine really laid them on the class so I came up with things like
    acetycholine – learning and memory – Ace is a card, card games need memory so you can learn the rules.
    GABA – blocks neurotransmitter effects – there’s a giant troll named Gaba who’s in your way!

    I wrote a comment about a year ago about how I was so glad to have found this as I was studying for my AP Psychology exam (on which I made a 4, I might add!)
    Now I am a Freshman in college studying Nutrition. As part of my required coursework I am currently taking an Anatomy and Physiology class.
    At this point in the semester we just started learning about the nervous system. I instantly thought back to last year’s psychology class and then immediately found this website again just to watch this video.
    So, I just wanted to thank you again and reiterate how helpful it has been! This is now the second time I am using this as a major study aid to memorize the parts of the brain and I’m sure I will be referencing it again in the future!

    I wanted to thank you. Your mnemonics helped me write my own. I can’t remember all those different things, so I turn mine into stories. I have one for the original 13 colonies and for spelling some words. Here’s what I have so far for the hind brain.
    A long time ago Corey was driving up the highway. Along the way he stopped in a small town. While he was there he saved an elderly man having a heart attack, automatically earning him a medal. Further up the road he spotted a relaxing pond and decided to pull over and take a nap. It wasn’t long before he was startled by a loud sound. He looked up and saw a very inebriated man dancing on a roof wearing bells.
    Corey and highway = spinal cord
    Medal, automatic, and heart = medulla (thank you for that one)
    Pond, sleep, and relaxation = pons (yours too)
    Inebriated, dancing, and roof (coordination & balance) = cerebellum

    If only there were one of these videos for every subject and area I am studying.

    It is quite surprising the things that will help you remember. Even while watching I was doubtful I could remember once the video was over. I was wrong, as soon as I hear the names of the area’s of the brain the video and words come straight back to me as if I were watching it again. It must be nice to know you are helping students all around the world (I am from New Zealand).

    So thank you.

    Thanks for the video! The mnemonics helped a lot. Just like the rest of the commenters, I also have a psych test.

    If I may, I’d like to add that the cerebral cortex, when you connected it to Texas and higher thinking, made me think of the company Texas Instruments, which makes graphing and scientific calculators (and hence E=mc^2). Just a little something which made the connection easier for me =]

    Fantastic stuff Michael. Helped greatly and now I clearly remember all of the parts of the brain you covered. Amazing how we can remember silly stuff! πŸ™‚

    I love your podcasts in general as well. They make an already interesting subject more interesting.

    Thanks and keep up the fantastic work.

    Tito: thx for writing and glad you liked the episode. Regarding your quote: “enhancement of memory bank” – well, I’m not exactly sure what’s being referred to here, but can you remember more things using mnemonics? I’d say yes to that. As far as “greater memorizing speed of the brain” – I suppose that’s true too. You certainly can memorize things faster using mnemonics. Well, hope that helps and thanks for the comment! Michael

    Mnemonics really work and also I am very thankful for your effort to keep the process and results on camera realistic. I have just one question tho :
    In your expert opinion, could mnemonics, after being practiced for some time lead to “enhancement of memory bank and greater memorizing speed of brain” ?
    Thx for awesome videos again sir!

    Dear Lifesaver,

    I have a Psychology midterm in three days. For the past month I have been pouring over the parts of the brain desperately trying to learn them, but with no success. I found your site, and I have to say it was hysterical. The quirky (somewhat ridiculous) mnemonics are unforgettable. So, thank you!!
