Photographic memory: Is it a hoax?

Photographic memory: Is it a hoax?
Photographic memory is the creme de la creme for brainiacs. A person opens up a book and looks at each page for a few seconds and has an exact photo image of it in their brain. Later, they can see an exact duplicate of those pages by pulling them up in their mind.  For U.S. Memory Champion Chester Santos, he can't count the number of times someone tells him they have a photographic memory. And each time, he gives them a polite nod and smile. He doesn't want to argue with the fantasy in their mind. Because for Santos, a photographic memory is just that. Pure...

At his one-day workshop, Chester spends an entire segment just on how to remember peoples names. At his seminars, starts each workshop out by naming the first names of...

Discovery Channel's Top 10 Ways to Improve Your Memory

Discovery Channel's Top 10 Ways to Improve Your Memory
  Top 10 Ways to Improve Your Memory By Molly Edmonds   The human brai­n is like a library that stock­s memories instead of books. In some ways, that makes the hippocampus, the part of the brain most involved in memory, the brain's librarian. The hippocampus has the most responsibility in this cranial library, juggling the new releases of short-term memory while cataloging materials for the permanent collection of long-term memory. It's not the only part at work, however, in storing these chapters of our lives. Different kinds of memory are stored in different areas of the brain. With such a large system, the brain needs a system...
