What is Photographic memory?
One of the Right Brain Functions identified by the late Prof. Makoto Shichida is the High Speed Mass Memory Function. In other words, the Right Brain has the ability to memorize massive amount of information at very high speed. It is also called Photographic memory which allows one to remember an entire page of information in one glance, as though taking a photo snapshot with a camera.
The controversy surrounding photographic memory is largely due to an incorrect definition and concept of what it is.
The Dictionary (Oxford) Definition:
- “The ability to remember information or visual images in great detail.”
The Hollywood/Junk Science Definition:
- “The ability to blink and store an image of whatever you were looking at in your head (and keep it there forever).”
- The controversy exists because of the Hollywood definition of the ability. While there are people who claim to be able to do this, all are thought to be fake as none of the claims have been validated.
- This is a condition where people are able to visualize an image for a brief time after it’s been taken away.
- A photographic memory refers to being able to recall every minute detail as if you had the object right in front of your eyes. As you can imagine, this is an extremely useful tool to have, and the amount of people who possess this wonderful ability is greater that you think it is.
- Some initial tests have suggested that quite a number of children, and perhaps adults too, have a special ability – something like a photographic memory, called “eidetic imagery”. This allows them to continue to ‘see’ an image, in detail, for a short while even after it is taken away.
- The University of Iowa Department of Psychology in association with the The Open University of UK has designed a series of tests, to help the photographic memory.
- There are only 10 questions, so do please try to do all of them, even if you think you are just guessing. You may not be aware of having the ability, so you might be doing better than you think!
- Initial tests suggest that talking disrupts the ability so try to do the test in a quiet place.
- If you score highly, it might be a sign that you have a 'photographic memory' - in which case, you'll be asked if you'd like to take part in a more serious study being organised by the University of Iowa.
