An Exceptional Memory
Hunter, Ian M. L.
British Journal of Psychology, 68 pt2, 155-64, May 77
An account is given of the exceptional memory of the late Professor A. C. Aitken who was also a distinguished mathematician and mental calculator. Compared with Shereshevskii, another man with exceptional memory, he shows the scholar's reliance on conceptual mapping rather than the mnemonist's reliance on perceptual chaining. (Editor)
