Hypermnesia - Definition


Definition


Hypermnesia defines great memory capacity. This capacity is often judged as a gift by others, yet considered a pathology by the medical field. This case occurs in the context of a great improvement in episodic memory. In cases of emotional hypermnesia, memories of traumatic events of life such as war or deportation continually resurface (Targowla's syndrome). It is advisable, however, not to classify an exceptional photographic or eidetic memory as hypermnesia, since these are not pathologies but rare abilities to memorize stimuli.
