And Don't You Forget It!
Scientists say a 42-year-old Californian woman can remember almost every detail of her life. The married woman, whom they have dubbed "Total Recall", says her life is like a "running movie that never stops". She can picture where she was, what she did and what made the headlines on any date since 1976. The woman, identified only as AJ, recalled big news events like Elvis Presley's death on August 16, 1977; but she also knew minor news item dates like a local tax passed in 1978 and a plane crash in 1979. However, her memory is not photographic. When asked to close her eyes she failed to remember researchers' clothes.
