Neural Imprinting: Ubiquitous, although it’s called “gnostic overlay” and “mnemonesis”. And while it is the standard educational technique (starting prenatally, with the axiom feed), it’s only the first step. After all, being able to download huge chunks of skillset into a chap’s brain is easy; successful integration and synthesis to make said skills your own is hard, and then practice, practice, practice!
Of course, in terms of pure fact-memory, being able to recall just about anything known by remembering it certainly helps. Assuming you have the intelligence and intellectual skills to do anything with the data, which is the hard part there.
