The mystery of human memory is one of the main scientific challenges of the XXI century, and resolve to have the joint efforts of chemists, physicists, biologists, physiologists, mathematicians and representatives of other scientific disciplines. It is known that the average person remembers events from 4-5 years.
But this girl surprised the whole world. Her memories start from birth. Rebecca Sharrock from Brisbane, Australia, remembers every detail of his life with 12 days of age.
That day she was photographed for the first time. Rebecca says that the father then put her in the driver’s seat for photos, and she was very interested in the wheel of a car and cover.
“And I always knew when I was holding mom. Don’t know how, but I instinctively felt it was my best man.”
First birthday girl remembers vividly. Mom put on her satin gown, which was very disgusting to touch. The girl was constantly crying, because they did not understand, who constantly touches her and says it’s a special day for her. Even worse was when the parents gave her a toy Minnie mouse grimace which was very frightening.
Then the girl started to cry even more than before, so it took away this gift.
In the childhood of Sharrock thought that all people can. And continued to think so until one day until she called the parents and asked to turn on the TV there was a program about people with giperkineticescom syndrome.
“It was January 23, 2011 – she recalls. – When members of that program, recounted what they remember, reporters are never tired of repeating: it is amazing, unbelievable…”
“And I asked my parents: “Why do they think it amazing? Isn’t that normal?” And they explained that no, it’s not, and they think that I have the same syndrome.”
“Now I’m writing a book “My life puzzle” (“My Life is a Puzzle”) and a greater proportion of it is memories of 4 years”.
However, the memory of 27-the summer inhabitant of Brisbane (Australia) is arranged not like most of us: the doctors diagnosed her rare diagnosis – giperkineticeski syndrome (eng. HSAM, Highly Superior Autobiographical Memory), highly superior autobiographical memory.
When hyperthymesia person is able to remember and reproduce an extremely high amount of information about his own life.
Some of them say that their memories are very well organized, but Sharrock (which also autistic) said that her brain is littered, and a constant feeling of certain moments of the past leads to headaches and insomnia.
Sharrock suffering from anxiety and depression, and staggering feats of memory makes it “an emotional time machine.”
In the world of such people is hundreds less than about 80. They have excellent autobiographical memory. However, good or bad? Imagine how it is to keep in memory every day and fascinating, and boring, and very sad.
Now she takes part in two studies that will help scientists find answers to many questions concerning the brain and human memory.
“The only goal is to find answers to questions about how memory works for each person, and to find something to help people with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Alzheimer’s is a condition very close to my heart, as my father’s stepfather was a disease. I loved him as if he was my biological grandfather,” — Rebecca Sharrock.
We will remind, 15-year-old girl in the body of the old woman celebrated her last birthday, this story will make you appreciate every moment.
