What would it be like if you never forgot anything?

Posted on by | No Comments Yet

There is a new tv show just out called ‘Unforgettable’ about a detective who never forgets anything.  Although this sounds like science fiction, in fact it is a known medical condition diagnosed in 2006, as ‘Hyperthymesia’.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Marilu Henner is a well known actress who also has this condition.  She is interviewed below: http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2010/12/20/earlyshow/leisure/celebspot/main7167813.shtml

This has a very interesting video attached to it.  Although this sounds amazing would it not also be exhausting?  How much memory would you like?
