I've come up with a little something:

Memory surfing tutorial:
Find something you once loved and long to remember.  Notice all sensory stimuli about it until you get a "hit".  Ride this wave into the next memory carefully noticing anything that rides perpendicular.  Any thoughts that may have been lost are usually the hardest to ride.  But once you've got one others will come.  Share your ideas on how to better expand your long term memory.

  4. Places are a huge trigger for me. When I'm out with some free time, I like to ride by my old neighborhood or school and it's amazing what pops up.

  5. Seems like a good idea and that it would work. I usually find memories just come back to me out of nowhere I dont really try to find them.

  6. When I get bored I sometimes will trace conversations I had to the nexus and see how it is we went from "Nice weather" to "Podracing".

    Interesting exercise.

  7. I love tracing conversations to see how they get from point A to point B.

    When it comes to triggering memory, it's usually something auditory for me.

  10. My memory is terrible, I remember a lot of things but not as a memory, more like something I knew but didn't knew I knew it untill I needed it.

  11. I use music as a memory trigger. So far this method was flawless.

  12. I'm with Akio, a certain scent on the breeze can easily hurl me back fifteen years into my childhood. Normally it's a time I have a lot of difficulty remembering, too.
