Transcript of Mnemonic Devices

Take the 'la' out of the end of amygdala. Think of LA as in Los Angeles. LA is the capital of entertainment so therefore also the capital of drama. Drama is caused by high emotions and tempers. It is caused by hyperactive amygdalas that don't do their job of controlling emotional responses well.
Take the first part of hippocampus
'hippo' for its mnemonic device. Hippos are excellent at remembering things so they can effectively store new memories into permanent storage.Imagine a hippo
glued to your hippocampus to
remind you it refers to
permanent memory storage.
The hippocampus stores
short term memories for
permanent storage.
Take the 'hypo' out of hypothalamus.
Hypo is close to hyper. Think
of hyper kids. Hyper kids want to expend their energy. They want to run around and play. After awhile, they get tired and warm and will need food, water, and rest. Their hypothalamuses, which control these basic body functions like hunger, thirst, and body temperature, will send signals to have
them sweat, drink some water, and
eat some food.
Take 'tempor' out of temporal.
Change 'tempor' to temper. Think of
a child with bad temper and a child with a temper tends to yell and
scream which people all around
will hear. The part of their brain
that will process those sound
waves is the temporal lobe
which is the auditory
processing area of the
Take ‘bell’ out of
cerebellum. Think
about ringing a bell. When you ring a bell, it is a voluntary movement and the cerebellum controls
voluntary movement and
Parietal Lobe
Take 'riet' out of parietal and
change it to 'riot'. When people are rioting, they are trying to get people to take notice of them and to see the information they are presenting. The rioters want the observers parietal lobes which have association
areas that process information
to be active.
Occipital Lobe
Take 'pital' out of the end of
occipital. 'Pital' sounds a lot like
petal as a petal of a flower. When you hear the word flower you get a clear picture of a flower that you have seen before in your head. When you looked at that flower, your occipital lobe generated the image you saw because it is the primary visual processing area of the
Thalamus sounds like the llamas and if you were to see some llamas in school you would wonder if you were dreaming or if your senses of sight, hearing, and smell were receiving the correct sensory signals from the thalamus.
Mnemonic Devices
The Key to Memorization
Adria Bollendorf & Kierstin Sorensen
Take the 'med' out of medulla.
Med like medical. Think of the medical machines at hospitals that monitor patient's heartbeat and the ventilator that helps a patient breath. The medulla controls these basic
life support functions like breathing
and heartbeat.
Take call out of callosum. A call is an exchange of information between two sides of the call and the corpus callosum allows the two halves of the brain to communicate
with each other. It is like
the halves calling each other
and talking.
Frontal Lobe
Think of frontal as front all as in being in FRONT of ALL the class presenting. Before you speak and give a spoke presentation, you need to plan your presentation. Your peers tend to judge you. Your frontal lobe is responsible for most of our cognitive thinking such as
speaking, planning, and
