Then he tells us about Brad Williams, who has hyperthymestic syndrome. Brad has been interviewed by Good Morning America, who calls him “the Human Google.” His brother, Eric, has made a biography on Brad. Called “Unforgettable,” the documentary is due out soon.
Brad is one of only a handful of people considered for study under the diagnosis of hyperthymestic syndrome. The subjects are able to recall the day of the week for any given date, and are able to tell researchers all about what happened to them that day – what they were wearing, who they saw, and what public events happened that day. Of the three people studied, two are left-handed, but scientists are not sure if there is correlation there, because so few people are actually diagnosed with this syndrome.
