Non-Savant Eidetic Memory

The following are people to check out with regards to this subject. Although keep in mind that I cannot verify that these people are indeed NON-savants, but just that they seem to attribute their abilities to training and not genetics. Note: I also cannot totally verify the accuracy of their claims, as I only have access to news sources like the rest of us.

Andriy Tychonovych Slyusarchuk

Derren Victor Brown
Howard Stephen Berg

Derren Brown has some interesting videos on youtube related to his memory abilities that are worthy of mention:

Brown also claims to use some education techniques that are difficult to believe:

All this interests me because of its possible applications to education.
