Photographic memory

Recommended Posts

I have a friend who can look at a map of run trails in a particular area that she has never been on, put it away and remember where exactly to go 3 days later.  This seem like a photgraphic memory to you ?

No. Brain just wired differently to others. 

And its nothing special. Mrs AJ remembers everything....and will drag it out at any time during any argument to prove her point. :(

I have a photographic memory, but the kind where someone opened the back of the camera before rolling the film back into its cassette!

In the ABC "All in the mind" podcast there is an episode from April 21st called "A highly superior memory" about a girl who can remember everything that ever happened, like, ever!  Really. Her first memories were as a new born but admits that, as a newborn she didn't understand much of what she was seeing...  You might think that is an amazing gift, but its actually a curse for her - she is autistic and something else (OCD?), and feels everything when she remembers everything so bad memories (and she has a lot of them) are quite painful for her.  She remembers EVERY day of her life!

Anyway, well worth a listen if you get the chance, really interesting!
