Project X Memory

In this episode on memory, Dr. Gardy looks at how elite athletes perform dazzling feats, seemingly without effort. She joins a group of British "free runners," athletes performing the urban street stunts, to explore how muscle memory works. Dr. Fleck and grad student Marc Huot then unearth some surprising news in the classroom: students immediately forget 90% of information conveyed in a class lecture. Meanwhile, Dr. Alters meets Lawrence Farwell, the neuroscientist behind "Brain Fingerprinting" — a revolutionary new forensic technology that helps identify the criminal mind!
