Some techniques to good mental retention based on the video are visualization and association. Visualization is the ability to exchange words for images, this is important when we are dealing with multiples. For example, a patient comes in with multiple illnesses or issues going on with them. This is where visualization comes into play, our brains are more likely to remember when there are visuals, images our brains can process and then we associate that word with the image. Another technique discussed is note taking. When using note taking, you can come up with your own way to take notes that will help you memorize. Some techniques used is different symbols that help you capture your note taking, this could also be links between ideas, verbs, past tense, and unfamiliar words. Another technique discussed is idea mapping, which is mind mapping a visual interpretation of your thoughts and ideas arranged around a central topic. This combines visualization and note taking as you are writing down your thoughts and visualizing them through the map process.
