"The Method of Loci memorization technique is a 3,000-year-old mnemonic device commonly referred to today as a memory castle technique. The thesis studies the effectiveness of spatial memory in a virtual reality game space on users that do not normally employ memory castle techniques. The primary focus is on sequential navigation through the content with the goal of encoding memories for accurate sequential and non-sequential recall."
