    Hello, thanks everybody for the information sharing :)I'm a medical student trying to adapt the method of loci for the use of medecine. Although I already find some interesting techniques, I still have a few questions I haven't been able to tackle alone yet. Hope you might be able to help :)- Once the information coded into images and stocked in your mind palace, you obviously need to revise it from time to time. My question is : is-it required to perform an active revision (you take a paper and write down from the scratch the stuff you stocked), or a passive revision (just reviewing the written list of fact you stocked, or reviewing pictures of your mind palace) is enough ? - What's your revision frequency for the best retention ?

(I have the feeling that with mind palace, the quality of the retention is far superior to a regular study (ie revising day 1, day 3, day 7, month 1, month 6, year 1 etc, cf Emminghaus forgetting curve).- Do you need to write down the mnemotechnics pathway or stories you created, or where you put items in your mind palace? I mean, when you created 10 pathway a day, you begin to forget everything rather fast if you do not write down what you create. However, this is a cruel waste of time, so I would like to know if some of you have different opinions about it.Thanks for the help,Thomas
