Is there such a thing as a perfect recollection or photographic memory? This program examines that question and others related to the brain's ability to store knowledge. Using a wide range of examples, the program demonstrates that even the sharpest mental recording is subjective, selective, incomplete, even faulty. Students also learn how the performance of elite athletes may be tied to muscle memory, which facilitates previously learned actions and circumvents conscious thought. Finally, viewers meet Dr. Lawrence Farwell, the neuroscientist who invented brain fingerprinting-a technology that measures the brain's electrical signals when it references previously stored information.
