Brain Attic and Mind Palace??

Are they the same in a way or no?
I was just curious about it
P.S. If someone can explain to me more about the Brain Attic, I read Mastermind but i guess what i am not getting is how to work on making your Brain Attic?

Yes, I think they're pretty much the same thing. Except ACD calls it a "brain attic" in his books. However, more recently, it has been known as "mind palace".


"I demand to be incarcerated in the Tower immediately! With my co-conspirators, Sandshoes and Grandad"
"If you really are me, with your Sandshoes and your Dicky bow, then that calculation is still going on."
"Well, me and Chinny, we were surprised, but you came looking for us."

It actually tends to be referred to as Memory Palace or Method of Loci.

Don't make people into heroes John. Heroes don't exist and if they did I wouldn't be one of them.
