This seems like it might be a good way to improve your memory.
Previous research has demonstrated that self-referential strategies can be applied to improve memory in various memory- impaired populations.
We found a Self-imaging effect in memory, as self- imagining resulted in better performance in memory retrieval than semantic and superficial encoding in schizophrenia patients.
The memory boost for self-referenced information in comparison to semantic processing was not found for other self-referential strategies.
In addition no relationship between clinical variables and free recall performances was found. In controls, the Self-imaging condition did not result in better performance. The three self-referential strategies yielded better free recall than both superficial and semantic encoding.
