Post 114 – Memory Wizards II – Kids and Twins!

I have spotlighted a CBS News’ “60 Minutes” episode about people who have incredible memories. Well, the show did a follow up this past Sunday and revealed that since the last showing, they found kids who have this “illness.” Research is being done at University of California, Irvine. They found one child who has it and his twin doesn’t.

While all of this is interesting, this is so rare, and they still don’t know the cause. Wouldn’t it be great if they can find this to help us learn all those muscles, origins and insertions! (and in the future, remember you’ll have to add innervation and vessel supply to the list!)

Here’s the video and story: http://www.cbsnews.com/news/memory-wizards-60-minutes/

 

Next week, I’ll do a post on how a teen could have survived a 5 hour flight in an airplane wheel well.
