Do you have a photographic memory? Do you know someone who does? Photographic or eidetic memory refers to the ability of an individual to recall large amounts of detailed and vivid visual images, sounds, and/or objects. Studies have found that children with photographic memory, after being shown a picture and asked to study it for about thirty minutes, are able to recall and maintain the image in their memory as vividly as if it were still there after the image has been removed.
