3d render of a brain lifting incredible weights!
Daniel TammetHaving now seen
the excellent documentary on the autistic savant, Daniel Tammet, and noting the
subject’s popularity, I’ve done a little Googling to get some more information
for you…
This is the BBC News report of
Daniel Tammet’s attempt at the British and European record for reciting pi. He
is able to remember 22,511 decimal places of pi without using any special
memory techniques.
‘The Savant Syndrome’ provides
more background information on autistic savants. The article is by Dr. Darold
Treffert who is widely published on this subject and was a consultant to the
movie Rain Man. More on other autistic savants at Wikipedia.
