Do you want to be able to remember names at parties? Or where you last left your car keys? Or memorize The Wasteland? Attend this training by USA Memory Champion Nelson Dellis who will convert the whole museum into a "memory palace", a powerful mental device that the ancient Greeks employed to remember oratory as well as shopping lists. Employing exotic fragrances to help anchor your memorization, and magical illusions to test them, this will be unlike any other museum experience you have ever had. With Lila Davachi & Todd Gureckis from the Center for Neural Science & Center for Brain Imaging at New York University.
