Abundant and unusually vivid visual recall. Also known as photographic memory or total recall. There is no specific proof that photographic memory exists, though there are a lot of products and books that claim to increase that type of memory.
Example: “I keep seeing the accident, like it’s happening all over again. I see every detail with depth and color. It’s like a movie scene!”
