In working on an app to help kids memorize Japanese kanji, Kanjilicious, I started the journey by conducting a lot of research into just what the brain did to memorize a lot of new information. It led me to a few different individuals, and their contribution to memory science, who I just wanted to list in one centralized deck.

This is in no way comprehensive, but for the purposes of my study, does include some of the original thinkers behind both the central tenets of memorization, and developers of both flash cards, language learning systems, and applications.
