Yes: A great deal of research has been invested in photographic memory and other types of memory including total recall ( folks who recall literally every day in their life). There are varying degrees of recall in photographic and total recall memories just as there are in memories in general and it's all quite random in it's manifestation.

Dual n back training: hello ~ I am afraid I have no idea what you are referring to. Is this main stream theorising? Sounds fringe and I dont comment on fringe theory.

Slept somewhere different than home, i woke in middle of night confused as to where i was, it was also very dark in room. Is this a memory problem?

Woke up confused: but in a different house. If this type of thing has happened before or if you have other reasons to be concerned about your memory please see your doc and maybe a neuropsychologist. If this is the only incident it is likely that you were not fully awake and disoriented by being in a new place. Peace and good health. ...Read more

Try again: There are many antihypertensives most of which will not affect your mental function. In addition there are some very serious dietary measures you can try as well.

Reduce the sodium in your diet and exercise regularly. ...Read more

Bipolar disorder can: Have sudden shifts and comorbidities, but what you are describing sounds more like possibly a medication side effect.

Blood sugar level, and if you are doing street drugs or drinking you must immediatelystop. I recommend you go to the er now and get checked out. Best wishes. ...Read more

There are many causes of complaints of memory loss, not just alzheimer's disease, many of which can be treated. Early diagnosis and treatment is usually better than waiting for the problem to become critical. Knowing a diagnosis ahead of time can help people and their families prepare for the future. ...Read more
