"Every perception is to some degree an act of creation, and every act of memory is to some degree an act of imagination."

Shereshevsky's boss at the newspaper had noticed that Shereshevsky never needed to take any notes, but somehow still remembered all he was told, and had suggested he get his memory checked by an expert.   Luria began testing Shereshevsky's memory. He began with simple tests, short strings of words and of numbers. Shereshevsky remembered these with ease, and so Luria gradually increased the length of the strings. But no matter how long they got, Shereshevsky could recite them back. Fascinated, Luria went on to study Shereshevsky's memory for the next 30 years. In a book summing up his research\\ Alexander Luria, “The Mind of a Mnemonist”, Harvard University Press (1968)., Luria reported that: Index Augmenting Long-term Memory 1 Augmenting Long-term Memory 2 Augmenting Long-term Memory 3 Augmenting Long-term Memory 4 Augmenting Long-term Memory 5 Augmenting Long-term Memory 6 Augmenting Long-term Memory 7 Augmenting Long-term Memory 8 Augmenting Long-term Memory Part I: How to remember almost anything: the Anki system Part II: Personal Memory Systems More Broadly Appendix 1: analysis of Anki study time Appendix 2: Using Anki to learn APIs
