I never forget a face, but I'm terrible at remembering names. There's hope for me yet, though, as neuroscientists have unlocked the secret to having a good memory.
They found that good memory has nothing to do with your brain's structure - it's all about how connected your brain's cells are. And luckily for me it's something you can improve by learning. When people with average memory skills were trained to use special strategies they could memorise lists of 60 words - double what they could manage before.
