Why 18-Year-Old Canadian Emily Nash Is Sharing Her Unique Brain With Science CTV News
An 18 year old near Ottawa, Ontario, has been determined to have highly superior autobiographical memory (HSAM). As there are only about 100 persons worldwide with HSAM, she is quite unique and wanted by researchers to study memory as well as its related diseases, like dementia. There have been others like her, such as The Curious Case of Solomon Shereshevsky. A Man Who Was Capable of Remembering Everything. Unfortunately, a superpower memory means all experiences stay fresh, including the worst ones. And Shereshevsky's researchers believed he was hiding some secret memory formula and began to hound him. As a result, he turned to alcohol to cope, and his addiction resulted in an early demise. (CM)
