Total Recall: The woman who can't forget

A woman who has the remarkable ability to recall every trivial detail of every day of her life may be the key to unlocking the secret of how the human mind works.

Given any date, the 42-year-old Californian can recall the day of the week, major news events, and usually what the weather was that day, in what she describes as a "running movie that never stops".

The woman, known only as AJ, cannot forget things - even if she wants to, reports New Scientist. Her remarkable memory goes back to her teens; she can picture where she was, what she was doing and what made the news on any date since the mid 1970s.
