Superior Autobiographical Memory

Monday, December 20th, 2010

60 Minutes was very interesting on Sunday because of the piece it did on hyperthymesia, also known as superior autobiographical memory. I came across this story because Marilu Henner happens to be one of six known people with this ability. I really like the television show Taxi. So as soon as I saw her name I had to watch! Henner and five other known people have the ability to vividly remember every day of their life as if it just happened. Would you rather remember your entire life, or are you happy that you can’t? I am not sure if I wish I could remember everything or not. It certainly is a fascinating subject to contemplate. Check out the rest of the feature after the break.

Gatorade Go All Day – Nigel Sylvester in Japan from Defgrip on Vimeo.

Check out BMX star Nigel Sylvester on his trip to Japan with his sponsor Gatorade along for the ride to do some performance research. This video is very well shot and it is always cool to take a peak into the lives of athletes. This video was put together by Harrison Boyce of BMX industry-leadingDefgrip.
