Thanks squirrel for reminding me of the clip (it was a while ago now – my life is one big lag effect – haha)

I had a friend who had perfect visual and auditory memory…I really hated lecturing at her campus when invited because it meant I had to produce new research to be invited back. 🙂

Haha – I can understand how that would present a problem slpmartin 😉

I just love this, no matter how many times I see it, revealing one small part of what we don’t understand about the vastness of the brain’s capacity.

So true squirrel 🙂

Wow! It just reminds me of what a wonderful thing the human brain is – and how under-utilised! Great!
July 2, 2011 at 4:42 pm
Certainly under-utilised adeeyoyo 🙂 There is a theory if one part of the brain is shut down than other parts become over developed (a bit like if one of the senses is shut down than the others get better at what they do).

Yes, beyond amazing – you’d think it was impossible but there it is Aletha 🙂

Send this to the KKK! 🙂
Haha – Stafford you are funny 🙂

Outrageously so! 😀
I had seen a documentary on Stephen before, but his talent never ceases to enthral, Gabrielle. It must be quite exhausting for him.

It looks exhausting but maybe he goes into a trancelike state which may in fact be relaxing (I am sure the rest of his life would be exhausting – the dealing with people etc.,)

Oh yes, I’ve seen this … but never tire of it … just amazing viewing! 🙂
It certainly is Tracey 🙂

Just incredible. Such detail. I am blown away. WOW.

Yeah, it blows me away too Selma!
