Transcript of How to some people have photographic memory

Are you up for a challenge now? Well lets test your photographic memory and see how good it is! You will have to remember the numbers 1 to 8 or 9 and when they are flipped over you will have to put them in order and also at the same time remember the place they are in? In this YouTube clip a chimpanzee could do something that a human would find impossible to do! He memorized numbers that were quickly flipped over and yet he had to put them in order. Other students tried this task but they got up to about 4 or 5, however, they got better as they went on. This chimpanzee could remember the numbers from 1 to 8 or 9 and he was a lot faster than the normal kid!!! Why do some people have a photographic memory? By Kyla Did you know...

this special feature!!! * Your brain represents
about 2% of your body weight!!! *An average human brain
weighs about 1300g-1400g!!! The conclusion is that it doesn't matter who you are, or where you are, you can have a photographic memory naturally or train your brain to have this special feature! Everyone has a great memory even though you don't think you do!...Do you remember all of the people who were at the latest social gathering or birthday party you went to?...Yes??!!! This YouTube clip shows that animals can have photographic memory too! Did you know....

*About 5000 years ago humans
brains were even larger than
ours today!

*Sometimes wrinkles can
make us smarter! *That your brain never stops changing!
*When you're a teenager your brain still hasn't stopped growing! Did you know...
